Super Eagles and Leicester City player Ahmed Musa is close to agreeing a one-year loan move to Hull City, a Championship subside.

Hull have held talks with Leicester City this week and are confident of finalising a move before the deadline today, according to LEICESTER MERCURY.

This would see Musa reunite with Tigers boss Leone Slustsky, who the City forward played under for four years at CSKA Moscow.

The 24-year-old has struggled to impress since his £16million move to Leicester last summer, and has scored just five goals in 33 appearances.

Musa did scored in the Carabao Cup victory at Sheffield United, but had endured a torrid first-half performance at Bramall Lane.

Slustsky had hinted earlier in the window that a loan move was possible for  the Nigeria.

“He is not our player but, of course,  every coach is better working with players he knows and I worked with Musa for four years,” said Slutsky. ” I know him and he knows me.”

Murals finest performance for Leicester still remains the International Champions Cup game against Barcelona, where he scored twice.

He also scored twice in the FA Cup victory against Everton last season.
