Kano Pillars will not get a dime from the reported £16 million (5.87 billion Naira) paid by English side, Leicester City to Russian club, CSKA Moscow for the acquisition of striker Ahmed Musa, Goal can authoritatively report.
Musa left Pillars after his first season with the club in 2010 to Dutch side, VVV Venlo for an undisclosed fee with Sai Masu Gida getting the transfer fee but the Nigerian side did not insert any sell-on condition during the contract negotiations that could have made them beneficiaries in his future transfers.
Cllub spokesman Idris Malikawa informed Goal that Sai Masu Gida have learnt a great lesson from the experience of Musa and few other players that have left the club without sell-on clauses inserted during contract negotiations.
“I want to say that we are not going to get anything from his movement to England because there was no such condition attached to his contract when he was leaving us some years back,” Malikawa told Goal.
“We have considered all these and we have decided that we are going to look into the future sales of our players so that we can still continue to get something from their future moves to other clubs.”
He disclosed that they are glad that Musa has realised his ambition of playing in the English Premier League.
Musa moved to Leicester City for a reported £16million from the Russian champions, CSKA Moscow and he reportedly signed a four year deal with the English champions.
