Championship sides Hull City and Aston Villa are both interested in a loan for Leicester City striker Ahmed Musa in January, as per a report by the Hull Daily Mail.

Hull and Leicester agreed a loan deal for Musa in the summer but the Nigerian striker turned down a move to East Yorkshire as he did not want to play in the Championship. However, his chances with Leicester in the Premier League have been hard to come by and he is now being linked with a move again.

Aston Villa are also apparently interested. They have been in great form lately and will be looking for signings in January who will their bolster their ranks as they aim for a promotion under Steve Bruce.

Musa, 25, started his career in Nigeria before moving to Dutch club VVV in 2010. After two impressive seasons in Holland, Musa joined Russian giants CSKA Moscow in 2012. He was prolific for the Russian side and scored 54 goals in 164 games.

Leicester City paid around £16 million for Musa in the summer of 2016. Musa made his debut against Hull in August for the Foxes. However, his move to England has not worked out so far and he has only played 18 times for Leicester, scoring 2 goals. His only appearance this season was a League Cup game against Sheffield United.

It was with CSKA Moscow where Musa was managed by the current Hull City Leonid Slutsky. The Tigers have struggled so far this season and their fans will be hoping they can see off interest from Aston Villa and sign Ahmed Musa in January.
