‘I don’t know where the story is coming from’ – Ahmed Musa debunks reports of transfer to Sheffield Wednesday

Nigerian Professional Footballer, Ahmed Musa has debunked reports of him moving to England championship club, Sheffield Wednesday.

The Nigerian footballer is presently without a club after he left Saudi Arabian club, Al Nassr in October. He claimed he wants to play in top-flight leagues and not interested in a transfer to Sheffield Wednesday.

“I don’t know where the story [potential move to Sheffield] is coming from because I don’t pay attention to rumours and gossip,” Musa, 28, told BBC Sport Africa.

“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.

“It’s true that there is genuine interest from different clubs, but my agent Tony [Harris] is the one handling that.

“He knows what I want and I also know I want to play at the highest level at this stage of my professional career.

“I said when I left Saudi Arabia that my utmost desire is to challenge myself competitively at the top level both at the club and national team level.

“I’ve continued to keep myself fit for the next challenge and that is the only mindset I need right now. But, like every player representing the country, I want to play at the highest level.”

Musa spent two years with Premier League club Leicester City but struggled to establish himself at the EPL club. He then left the Foxes in 2018 to team up with Al Nassr.

“For some reasons, things didn’t actually work out there [at Leicester], but you can’t focus too much on the past,” he continued.

“I’d rather try to write a better story if another opportunity to play in the Premier League presents itself.”

Musa has 95 caps for the Super Eagles since he made his debut in 2010.
