​​Geoff Peters of talkSPORT has claimed that West Brom and Hull have expressed an interest in signing Leicester striker Ahmed Musa.

The Nigerian forward struggled to establish himself in the Premier League after arriving from CSKA Moscow for £16m last summer, scoring just two goals in 18 league appearances.

According to Peters, Musa is likely to leave the Foxes on a season long loan, although the club would prefer a permanent deal.

Leicester are, however, reportedly willing to accept a loan fee and will ask that his wages are fully paid.

Musa's availability has alerted new Hull boss Leonid Slutsky, who worked with the 24-year-old at CSKA and is believed to be keen to bring him to the KCOM Stadium. The Russian coach is hopeful that Musa can be persuaded to drop down a division.

West Brom are also said to be in the race for the pacy striker, who appears to have very little prospect of a future at Leicester.

Musa arrived at Leicester following their miraculous title winning 2015-16 season, but found himself part of a struggling squad at the start of the last campaign.

He and fellow new signings Islam Slimani and Nampalys Mendy struggled to adapt to a new league, and found chances limited later in the season as a result.

As well as Hull and West Brom, newly promoted Brighton and Hove Albion have been linked with a move for Musa, as have Turkish Super Lig giants Fenerbahce.
