Ahmed Musa’s Deal Fallout: Many Baggies Fans Question West Brom’s Call

Ahmed Musa’s Deal Fallout: Many Baggies Fans Question West Brom’s Call 1

Many Baggies fans have reacted to reports that claim the struggling Premier League club have decided against signing free agent Ahmed Musa

Quite a few West Bromwich Albion fans have taken to social media to voice out their displeasure over the club’s decision to refuse offering a contract to Super Eagles captain Ahmed Musa.

The Nigerian international, a free agent since leaving Saudi Arabian side Al Nassr last year, had been linked with Albion throughout the January transfer window and even into February.

Musa appeared close to joining the Baggies after travelling to England last week to have a trial at the Hawthorn.

However, Joseph Masi of Express and Star has now claimed that the club pulled out of a deal for Musa as they feel that they have stronger players in his position.

West Brom are one of the lowest-scoring sides in the Premier League and, in addition to their leaky defence, are prime candidates for the drop.

With none of the Baggies’ forward players having particularly impressed this season apart from the inconsistent Matheus Pereira, it is puzzling that the relegation battlers would pass up the chance to sign the former Leicester City ace for free.

A recent report from The Daily Mail revealed that West Brom have run out of money to sign free agent Musa, raising the possibility that the club is trying to save face by claiming that the Nigeria captain simply isn’t good enough.

Many Baggies fans have reacted with mixed reactions at the club’s decision to snub the Nigerian with the winter transfer window already slammed shut.

While some claimed that this was a good decision by the club, others questioned the reasoning behind the move as manager Sam Allardyce does not have many quality attackers at his disposal.

Here is how some West Brom fans reacted to the news that Musa won’t be joining the English side.

Ahmed Musa has previously enjoyed different spells in the Netherlands, Russia, England, and Saudi Arabia since leaving the domestic league in 2009.
