Former Leicester City forward, Nigeria’s Ahmed Musa has dismissed rumours linking him with a potential move to Championship side, Sheffield Wednesday.
Musa, who is currently unattached after a two-year spell with Saudi club Al Nassr, insisted he wants a return to top-flight football instead.
The 28-year-old said, “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.”
At Nassr, the Super Eagles skipper scored 11 goals and provided 14 assists in 57 matches, helping Al Nassr, whom he joined from Leicester City in summer 2018, to the Saudi Pro League and Super Cup titles.
Musa, who also played twice for CSKA Moscow, had an unsuccessful time at Leicester City, a club he joined for a club-record fee in July 2016. The pacey forward scored only five goals in 33 matches for the Foxes.
Musa has now been strongly linked with a return to the English Premier League and Russian giants CSKA Moscow, where he is highly revered for scoring 61 times and creating 33 assists in 184 games across two spells.
Turkish giants, Galatasaray and Fenerbahce, are also reportedly interested in the player.
