Former Nigeria footballer, Victor Ezeji has advised Leicester City flop, Ahmed Musa to leave the club in order to breathe new life into his career, reports.

Signed from CSKA Moscow in the summer of 2016 for a record £20 million, the Nigeria international has had a shocking stint at the King Power Stadium.

Since his arrival, Musa has managed just 33 appearances for Leicester City (five goals), of which, only a single appearance has come this season.

Musa arrived in the East Midlands as a hot young striker, having scored 18 goals (and six assists) in 44 appearances for his former side CSKA the previous season.

However, his career has nosedived, arguably because of poor treatment from the club.

Victor Ezeji urged Musa to move on as well, if he is to board the flight to Russia next year.

“He should get a new club because when a new coach comes in and also sidelines you, it means you have to look elsewhere. No coach will buy you in January and don’t use you,” Ezeji stated.

Aston Villa are also said to be interested in Musa’s services as they look to add more arsenal to their squad. The Villans are currently placed eight in the Sky Bet Championship, with a play-off spot well within their reach.

There have been a few reports suggesting that Musa could be headed to his old club CSKA Moscow yet again, while some reckon Stoke City and Hull City are also in the hunt for the former VVV Venlo speedster.
