Ahmed Musa Debunks Link To Sheffield, Speaks Of His New Club

Ahmed Musa Sheffield New Club

Ahmed Musa has played down reports linking him with a move to English Championship club Sheffield, insisting he wants a return to top-flight football instead.

The Super Eagles captain is currently without a club having left Saudi side Al Nassr by mutual consent last month.

“I don't know where the story [potential move to Sheffield] is coming from because I don't pay attention to rumours and gossip,” Musa told BBC Sport Africa.

“With due respect to the club, I left Saudi Arabia to continue my career at the top level in Europe and that's the ambition.”

The pacey forward has now been strongly linked with a return to the English Premier League and Russian giants CSKA Moscow.

Newspaper reports have also reported that Turkish giants clubs Galatasaray and Fenerbahce are interested in signing the Nigerian.

The former VVV Venlo of Netherlands player refused to confirm or deny media reports in England, Russia and Turkey linking him with different top tier clubs.

“It's true that there are genuine interest from different clubs, but my agent Tony [Harris] is the one handling that.

“I said when I left Saudi Arabia that my utmost desire is to challenge myself competitively at the top level both at club and national team level.

“I've continued to keep myself fit for the next challenge and that is the only mindset I need right now.
