The former Leicester City man has been without a club since parting ways, by mutual consent, with Saudi Arabia’s Al Nassr last October.

He is keen stay fit for Nigeria’s upcoming World Cup qualifiers, starting in June

“It is good for me to join Pillars because this is where I started from and it also helps to improve the profile of the league,” Musa told ESPN.

Musa has received offers from teams in Russia, England and Turkey, but is taking his time to come to a decision.

“In the end, I want something that will be good for my family, so I don’t want to rush,” he added.

Musa’s acquisition is a major coup for the Nigeria Professional Football League, whose chairman Shehu Dikko helped propose and execute the idea of elite players and former Nigeria internationals returning from Europe to play in the domestic league.
