Nigeria International, Ahmed Musah has joined Nigeria side, Kano Pillars on a short term deal.

The 28 year old is the third most capped player in the history of the Super Eagles behind Enyeama and Joseph Yobo. The deal is understood to have a clause that allows the Nigerian to leave when he finds a club in Europe.

Speaking to the BBC Sport Africa, the former Kano pillars forward who was top scorer in the league while playing for the club expressed delight to return to the Club where his professional career started. He also added that he plans to bring value to the Nigerian League and improve its image on the continent.

“Anything that improves the image of Nigerian football is something that I strive to embark on and Kano Pillars holds a special place in my heart,”

“It’s the team that helped me become the professional footballer I am today, so this is more than just football but a very strong bond.”

Musah has enjoyed a sterling career so far. He is Nigeria’s top scorer in the FIFA world Cup and has had stints in the Netherland, England and Russia- where he scored 61 Goals in 184 matches for CSKA Moscow.
