Unless he is exempted, The Nigerian international who scored seven goals in 24 league appearances for Al Nassr in the just concluded season would likely be going back to the Middle East as Al Nassr host Iranian side Zob Ahan on May 21 for their final AFC Champions League group fixture.
Next month, Musa who was named in Nigeria’s 25-man provisional squad for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations will join the rest of his international teammates in Asaba for their first training camp.
