Flying Eagles skipper Musa Mohammed will not join Rosenborg

26 June 2015, 15:34

Lagos - Tippeligaen club Rosenborg have no intention of offering a contract to Nigeria Under - 20 captain Musa Mohammed.

Rosenborg's chief scout traveled all the way to Senegal to run the rule over the right - back during the African Youth Championship but did not recommend to his superiors that the defender should be signed.

Though Musa Mohammed's performance impressed the observer, Rosenborg are aware he will be surplus to requirements due to the form of the young 'experienced' fullback Jonas Svensson, who has lasted the full distance in every single game contested by RBK this season in the league.

A Rosenborg insider told news24.com ''Rosenborg don't have much money now to pay 500,000 Euros for Musa Mohammed.

''The scout was in Senegal to watch Musa and they thought he was good but they have a right - back playing well for them.

''Right - back is not a position they are looking to strengthen, they have not made an offer for Musa Mohammed.''

Another team in Norway had made enquiries over the availability of the FC Heart Academy starlet post - AYC but Musa's intermediary, Adam Mohammed, had claimed that his client had already signed for a club.
