West Bromwich Albion have decided to pass on Nigeria international Ahmed Musa.

The 28-year-old began training with the Baggies last week in the hope of proving his fitness and earning a deal until the end of the campaign.

A winger who is also able to play up front, the Super Eagles skipper is currently a free agent meaning he is able to join a club outside the transfer window.

Back in 2016 the forward became Leicester’s record signing when the Foxes paid £16.6million to sign him from CSKA Moscow.

The Baggies have decided against offering Musa a deal with the club feeling they already have stronger players in his preferred position out wide.

This is perhaps a surprise that West Brom have turned down the chance to sign Musa. Sam Allardyce’s men are in a bleak situation in the Premier League.

It will be interesting to see if the Baggies’ reported decision prompts his other admirers to act.

Admittedly, some of the sides looking at Musa were simply planning to offer him the chance to train with them. So the Nigeria international may still have to prove himself elsewhere before earning his next move.
