Ahmed Musa To Join Dutch Club

The goal king of the Nigeria Premier League (NPL), Ahmed Musa, is set to join up with modest Dutch side, VVV Venlo, has scooped again.
The Kano Pillars’ winger, who netted a record 18 goals this past season, is expected to soon jet out to sign the dotted lines after he was assured of regular first-team action for the club simply referred to as VVV.
“He has agreed to join VVV Venlo. This was on account of the assurance that he has been guaranteed a first-team place at the club,” a top source close to the teenaged striker disclosed to
Musa, who will celebrate his 18th birthday in October, would be a direct replacement for 28-year-old Ruben Schaken who has left for Feyenoord on a free transfer.
His move to VVV will thus cool off the interest of several of Europe’s top clubs like Olympiakos, Ajax Amsterdam and Barcelona.
VVV was the first Dutch club of former Nigeria international star, Tijjani Babangida.
“It could turn out to be a great move because he is a very good player, but he has to redouble his efforts playing for a small club like VVV so as to the attract the attention of bigger clubs like Ajax,” Babangida told
“If he is free of injury, keeps up his form and has a good mentality, he will be a big hit in Europe in the next two, three years.”
Japan standout star at the 2010 World Cup, Keisuke Honda, began his career in Europe at this club before he was snatched by CSKA Moscow last year.
The club, who placed 12th this past term, already has two other Nigerians on its books, former youth internationals, Alex Nkume and Michael Uchebo.
