Hull City manager Leonid Slutsky has hinted that a loan move for Leicester City forward Ahmed Musa is “possible”.

The Tigers have been frequently linked with the Nigeria international this summer with Musa having played under Slutsky for four years at former club CSKA Moscow.

Musa did not make the matchday squad for Leicester City last Friday; suggesting that he is surplus to requirement at the King Power Stadium.

“We have some loan options and maybe at the end of the transfer window getting players from the Premier League is possible,” said Slutsky, following Hull’s 3-2 defeat to Wolves. “We are waiting for the decision of big clubs on some players.

 “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. I know him and he knows me, it is normal.

 “His position is not the only important one though in this situation.”
