Seems like Kano Pillars will not get any money from Ahmed Musa’s £16.5million transfer to Premier League champions, Leicester City.
This is because the NPFL side did not insert a sell-on Clause during the contract negotiations that could have made them beneficiaries in his future transfers.According to Kano Pillars spokesman, Idris Malikawa, the club has learnt a great lesson from the experience of Musa and few other players that have left the club without sell-on clauses inserted during contract negotiations.
“I want to say that we are not going to get anything from his movement to England because there was no such condition attached to his contract when he was leaving us some years back,” Malikawa said. “We have considered all these and we have decided that we are going to look into the future sales of our players so that we can still continue to get something from their future moves to other clubs.”
The Nigeria international frontman, 23, who has signed a four-year deal with the Premier League champions, Musa told the club’s website: ‘I feel very happy joining Leicester City, for me it’s one of the best clubs and I feel very happy,’ ‘I joined because it’s one of the best clubs in the Premier League and they are like a family.That’s why I joined Leicester City and I’m very excited. ‘I look forward to seeing the fans in the new season and I will do my best to make them happy.’
The striker scored 13 goals and assisted another five for CSKA in 30 Russian Premier League appearances during the 2015-16 season – his most prolific campaign for Leonid Slutsky’s side since his arrival from Dutch side VVV-Venlo in 2012
