Super Eagles captain, Ahmed Musa’s proposed transfer to English Premier League club, West Brom has been terminated.

Musa, who terminated his lucrative contract with Saudi Arabian Pro League side Al-Nassr last October, passed a fitness test under the supervision of West Brom’s sports science and performance team at the training center last week Thursday.

The club had earlier planned to sign him on a short term deal but club bosses have now reportedly rejected Musa saying his salary package of £60,000, with the club’s board agreeing that the salary was too high for a player with a low resale value.


The club also pulled the plug on the deal because they have a limited transfer budget.

According to reports from England, Musa’s agent gave a deadline to West Brom to complete his transfer.


The deadline expired this week so both parties ended negotiations and he is exploring other options.


While at Al-Nassr, Musa earned a weekly salary of 60,000 pounds and an annual salary of 16.5 million Euros before tax.
