*Confirms deal with West Brom; set to fly out of the country
Super Eagles skipper, Ahmed Musa has confirmed a deal with Premier League side West Bromwich Albion is almost done after the club also confirmed their interest in the free agent, AOIFootball.com can authoritatively confirm.
A close source to the player revealed that the former Kano Pillars man is already putting finishing touches to the move and will depart Nigeria to the UK in the coming days to complete his medicals and seal the deal.
The former CSKA Moscow player is expected to sign a six months short term deal with plenty of severance packages should he help Sam Allardyce keep West Brom from dropping down to the Championship.
Speaking during his prematch conference ahead of his side’s clash against Manchester City, the Baggies manager also confirmed the club have made an offer to the Eagles captain and will announce him when he arrives.
The 28-year-old will have a second stint in the English Premier League after a not too impressive first outing with Leicester City where he only managed starts in the 2016-2017 season before returning on loan to Russia side CSKA Moscow in January 2018.
The Baggies are currently 19th on the log, six points behind 17th place Brighton, and could do with the pace of Musa should they bid to avoid been relegated in May.
