Musa is not leaving Leicester – Agent

Ahmed Musa

According to reports from Leicestermercury, Super Eagles assistant captain Ahmed Musa will not be leaving Leicester this summer, claims his agent.

The Mercury understands the Nigerian is attracting interest from the Premier League and abroad, with City open to selling if an offer suits both the club and the player.

Fenerbahce were rumoured to be in talks with Musa but those reports had been played down, with the 24-year-old’s agent, Tony Harris, now confirming no contact has been made with the Turkish giants.

Harris is insistent that Musa will not be heading overseas this summer, but did not clarify if his client’s future is at City or elsewhere in England.

“(The Fenerbahce reports are) rumours,” Harris told BBC journalist Oluwashina Okeleji. “There’s no truth in that.

“Fenerbahce is a decent club of course however Musa will not be leaving England.”

Musa, signed by City from CSKA Moscow for £16million last summer, struggled to adapt to life in the Premier League, scoring just four goals in his 31 games.

The Nigerian’s game-time became more limited after the departure of Claudio Ranieri, making just three appearances, all from the bench, under Craig Shakespeare.
