Venlo Refuses To Speak On Musa Deal

Dutch Eredivisie club, VVV Venlo has decided to keep sealed lips on the contractual agreement between it and Nigeria Premier League’s record top scorer, Ahmed Musa, can reveal.
In an e-mail response from the club’s Press and Communication Officer, Ellen Berden, over the weekend, it stated in clear terms that the VVV Venlo will not divulge any detail on the deal with the Nigerian attacking winger.
“VVV-Venlo cannot give you any information about Musa,” Berden wrote in a one-sentence reply to enquiries made by our correspondent to know the true status of the deal.
But understands that the Dutch club and Musa’s representative from Aminchi Football Academy have settled for a three-year contract for the 17-year-old.
Contrary to reports that Kano Pillars has full ownership of the teenage striker, it has been learnt that Aminchi Football Academy only loaned out the player to Kano Pillars last season on a year deal.
Kano Pillars’ chairman, Babangida Tukur, confirmed that his club does not have full ownership of the pacy striker as it was believed.
“We are not the owner of Ahmed Musa. We only took him only on a loan deal and it paid off for us and for him, as he became the most celebrated player in the league. So he has returned to his club,” said Tukur, who had hoped his side could buy Musa’s ownership from Aminchi Football Academy.
The academy, it will be recalled, also sent Musa on loan to Jos University Teaching Hospital (JUTH) Football Club two seasons ago before the side was relegated to the lower division.
With Musa’s clearance papers holed up at Aminchi Football Academy, his transfer fee would be paid to the Bukuru-based outfit.
Attempts to find out the transfer fee dangled at Aminchi Football Academy by VVV Venlo still remain unconfirmed.
