“I don’t know where the story [potential move to Sheffield] is coming from because I don’t pay attention to rumours and gossip,” Musa, 28, told BBC Sport Africa.

“With due respect to the club, I left Saudi Arabia to continue my career at the top level in Europe and that’s the ambition.

“It’s true that there is genuine interest from different clubs, but my agent Tony [Harris] is the one handling that.

“He knows what I want and I also know I want to play at the highest level at this stage of my professional career.

“I said when I left Saudi Arabia that my utmost desire is to challenge myself competitively at the top level both at the club and national team level.

“I’ve continued to keep myself fit for the next challenge and that is the only mindset I need right now. But, like every player representing the country, I want to play at the highest level.”

Ahmed Musa left English Premier League side, Leicester City in 2018 and joined forces with the gulf club until October, 2020.
