Siasia allows Musa Yahaya resume training with Tottenham U18s

31 July 2015, 16:03

Lagos - Babawo Mohammed, the intermediary that handles the affairs of Musa Yahaya, has rubbished reports that suggested the Tottenham Hotspur trainee dropped himself from the Dream Team VI squad ahead of their trip to Pointe-Noire.

While with the Olympic Team, Musa Yahaya put his career at the White Hart Lane outfit at risk by failing to return to London despite the commencement of pre-season training.

Now, the Jos-based agent has stressed that the attacking midfielder's departure from the Nigeria U23s camp had the blessing of coach Samson Siasia.

''Musa Yahaya did not run away from camp, he asked for permission and the coach granted him to leave,'' said Babawo Mohammed to news24.

''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.''

All things being equal, the Mutunchi Academy product will pen a professional deal with Spurs in the first week of January next year after attaining the age of majority.
