Exclusive: Leicester City Record Buy Musa Still Awaiting Work Permit DecisionAllnigeriasoccer.com can exclusively report that Ahmed Musa has not yet been granted a residence permit by the authorities in the United Kingdom, with just over two weeks left before the start of the new Premier League season.

If the former CSKA Moscow star does not get a work permit before August 7, he may be unavailable for selection when Leicester City tackle Manchester United in the FA Community Shield.

Waving aside these thoughts, the Foxes definitely did their homework before acquiring him from the Russian champions and are certain that the Nigerian will obtain the document in the coming days. 

Apart from the record transfer fee, thought to be around $21 million, Musa is a seasoned Nigeria international and has several games under his belt in the UEFA Champions League, conditions necessary for him to be issued a work permit.

To cut a long story short, new Watford signing Isaac Success, who was signed for a lower transfer fee, and has not played for Nigeria, has been granted a work permit and this suggests Musa is home and dry regarding his application for the document.
