The 28-year-old, who is a free agent since leaving Saudi Arabian side Al Nassr in October, had received offers from England, Russia and Turkey.

Speaking on the move, the former Leicester, CSKA forward, told BBC Sport Africa, “Anything that improves the image of Nigerian football is something that I strive to embark on and Kano Pillars holds a special place in my heart.”

“It’s the team that helped me become the professional footballer I am today, so this is more than just football but a very strong bond.”

Musa in his first spell with Pillars, Musa scored 18 goals to finish as top scorer in the 2009/10 NPFL season.
