While the World Cup is still over five months away, one of the players on the radar to represent Nigeria at the Mundai, Ahmed Musa is reportedly set for a trip back to Moscow.

It is understood that Musa is heading back to his former Russian club CSKA Moscow after a turbulent time at Leicester City in the Premier League.

Musa won several Russian championships and featured in the UEFA Champions League before his big-money move to England.

His return to Russia will cool off rife speculations surrounding the forward’s future.

Musa's planned return to Russia is a welcoming development for Super Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr who said he believes Musa's return to Russia will bode well for the Super Eagles at the World Cup.

“Ahmed Musa going back to CSKA in Russia, that is good news, because they like him there very much and he will get to play more,” Rohr said.

The coach has received knocks for insisting on calling up the player even when he had been demoted to the Leicester City development side.

Meanwhile, Musa scored for the Leicester U23s on Wednesday night in what could be his last appearance for the English club.
