Musa plays down Spurs link

October 22, 2014

Nigeria striker Ahmed Musa has remained calm in the wake of being recently linked to Barclays Premier League club Tottenham Hotspur.

Spurs have been tracking Musa since 2011 and are still showing interest in the 22-year-old, who has made it clear he is "comfortable" at CSKA Moscow despite harbouring the ambition of playing in the English top flight in the future.

The CSKA Moscow man, who played in the 2-2 draw in Tuesday's Uefa Champions League match against English champions, Manchester City, said a January transfer could happen.

But he stated that the decision of leaving CSKA Moscow is not one he will make, as he is focused on helping his Russian club win trophies.

"Playing in the (English) Premier League someday has always been my wish. I’m aware that my manager has been discussing with some premiership clubs. Maybe in January something will happen, or maybe not but I’m not in a hurry at all.

"I’m happy and very comfortable with where I am at the moment. If the right club comes and my manager and my club are happy with the deal then maybe something will happen but for now my focus is on doing well for CSKA Moscow and nothing else," Musa said to

Musa has scored more than 20 goals for CSKA since joining the Moscow club two years ago.
