English Premiership side, West Brom, have reportedly opted against handing a deal to Super Eagles captain, Ahmed Musa, after having the Nigerian international train at the club.
According to the Express and Star, the Baggies have had the 28-year-old training with them since last week in a bid to prove his fitness.
But it appears that after seeing him at close quarters, manager Sam Allardyce has decided against signing the attacker.
Sportsmail reported earlier this week that West Brom might not be able to stretch their wage budget to sign Musa after a busy January window.
Musa is a free agent after his deal with Saudi Arabian side Al-Nassr had expired.
The 28-year-old has also previously been linked with some of West Brom’s Premier League rivals in Burnley, Southampton, Brighton.
Russian side CSKA Moscow are also understood to be either willing to make him an offer or inviting him in to train with them instead.
