Portuguese giants FC Porto hav formally applied to UEFA for Musa Yahaya to be registered for the UEFA Youth League, when the second stanza gets underway next year.
Rated as one of the best teen prospect in Nigeria alongside the likes of Iheanacho and co after conquering the world at U-17 level in 2013, he trained with English giants Tottenham Hotspur before heading out on loan to Portimonense.

After spending six months at Portimonense, he was traded by Spurs to Portuguese side FC Porto, where he has been since the summer but still waiting for his first game with the club.

However, while his first team debut might take a while, he will most likely play for the B team in the UEFA youth league going by reports exclusively gathered by Owngoalnigeria.com.

The 19 year old was at the embassy for his visa, which will enable travel with the team to all of their games in the tournament.

” Yahaya is a part of the first team of FC Porto. He trains regularly with them that is why he is not playing for the B team in the lower league but he will represent them in the UEFA Youth League” a source close to the player told Owngoalnigeria.com.

” He went to the embassy few days ago to get his visa, he will definitely play for the team this season. Most likely next year after the Christmas celebration”.
