West Brom Albion gaffer Sam Allardyce has explained why his club failed to complete the signing of Nigerian winger Ahmed Musa on a short-term contract.

After signing Mbaye Diagne, Okay Yokuslu, and Ainsley Maitland-Niles towards the end of the January transfer window, Musa was close to being the latest addition at the Hawthorne as the Baggies aimed to improve the squad.

Musa traveled to England from Nigeria and was spotted at Albion’s Walsall training ground in a bid to wrap up a deal that will see him play with Baggies until the end of the season.

However, the deal fell through at the last stage and the Super Eagles Captain will now seek to restart his club adventure elsewhere.

According to reports from UK media, Allardyce was close to signing the former Leicester City winger but West Brom failed to reach an agreement with Musa and his representatives over his wages.

Musa has remained without a club since October 2020 after agreeing to part ways with his Saudi Arabia club Al Nassr.
