Sam Allardyce said the club was not position to sign the Nigerian on a short-term deal after the loan captures of Mbaye Diagne, Okay Yokuslu and Ainsley Maitland-Niles which came at the deadline day of the transfer window.
Ahmed Musa has been without a club since leaving Saudi side Al-Nassr in October of last year. He was previous linked to four EPL clubs but it never worked before the interest of West Brom which also did not work out.
