Former Nigeria U17 and 20 wing forward Musa Yahaya says he is open to the idea of leaving FC Porto on loan in January to a team playing in the top division, Owngoalnigeria.com reports.
20 year old Yahaya is still playing for the B team of the Portuguese outfit two years after joining the club from fellow Portuguese side Portimonense for a fee in a little over €500,000.
The forward who is now mostly deployed as a right wing back has played five games for the B team of the Portuguese side who are campaigning in the second division, no thanks to injuries and fitness issues.
” I have played for two years with Porto B . It will be good to test all that I have learnt in a top division team. Since I’m not getting it at Porto, I honestly won’t mind going on loan in January “, Yahaya told Owngoalnigeria.com in an exclusive interview.
Speaking on the inactivity of Chidozie Awaziem at the club since his return from a productive loan spell in France with Nantes, Yahaya explained that he will no doubt prove his quality when he is given the chance to play.
” It’s really not easy for young African central defenders in Europe. Awaziem will play games this season, all he need is just a game to cement his spot. I know he can do it because he has the ability “, he concluded.
