Leicester City forward, Ahmed Musa has confirmed that he is finding it difficult to agree a switch to Championship side, Hull City because the club play in the English second-tier.
The Nigerian International has an excellent relationship with the Tigers coach, Leonid Slutsky, who was his former manager at CSKA Moscow.
The 25-year-old has considered the possibility of playing for Slutsky again in future.
"Slutsky for me is a father. And we are always in touch, we communicate warmly. This coach has always helped me to feel confident, to believe in my strength," Musa told sport-express.ru.
"And he really calls me to Hull City. I just cannot physically tell him No. Perhaps in the near future again I will play for his team.
"The problem is Hull is in the Championship. It is for this reason that it's hard for me to decide, " Musa said.
Musa is currently in Krasnodar, Southern Russia, ahead of Nigeria's friendly against Argentina on Tuesday.
