Musa reveals why he snubbed Hull move

The speedy winger does not want to give up the opportunity of playing in the English top-flight.

Leicester City midfielder Ahmed Musa revealed he has no desire of dropping to the English Championship in order to reunite with his former manager Leonid Slutsky at Hull City.

The Nigeria international has been struggling to find consistent playing time at the Foxes, but ruled out the speculations linking him with his former boss at the Tigers.

The 24-year-old winger admitted he would have enjoyed to play under Leonid Lutsky, but also noted he was not willing to give up the Premier League for it.

“Slutsky for me is a father. And we are always in touch, we communicate warmly,” Musa told Sport Express.

“He has always helped me to feel confident, to believe in my strength. And he really called me to his team. I just can not tell him ‘no’. Perhaps in the near future again I will play for his team.

“[Hull City playing in the Championship] is the problem. It is for this reason that it’s hard for me to decide.”
