Nigeria Under 20 international Musa Yahaya has returned to London just in time before the start of the new season.
The attacking midfielder made his debut for the Olympic National Team two weeks ago in the 2 – 1 win against Congo but will miss the return leg tomorrow after coach Samson Siasia allowed him to return to the United Kingdom.
“Musa Yahaya did not run away from camp, he asked for permission and the coach granted him to leave, ” said Babawo Mohammed to news24.com.[post_ad]
“Siasia authorized him to go to the embassy and submit his visa application to England. I repeat he did not run away.
“He is in England now training with Tottenham Hotspur’s Under 18 and Under 19 teams.”
The 17-year-old Yahaya becomes eligible to sign a professional deal with Spurs in the 2016 winter transfer market .
