Leicester City forward Ahmed Musa has reportedly remained as a target for both Hull City and Aston Villa in January transfer window.

The 25-year-old Super Eagles star Musa was linked with a reunion with former CSKA Moscow coach Leonid Slutsky, but a transfer failed to materialize before the end of the window.

However, according to the Hull Daily Mail, the Tigers are still interested in the 25-year-old Nigerian international with Aston Villa are also allegedly taking an interest in Musa, who has made more outings for Nigeria than Leicester this season.

Slutsky also feels that his Hull squad is in need of improvements after just 16 points were recorded from the club's first 16 games of the Championship campaign, leaving Hull in 20th place in the standings.

Musa has struggled badly since first arriving in English football 15 months ago. A then club record fee of £17m was paid to CSKA Moscow, where Musa had spent four years working under Slutsky in the Russia capital

Musa has featured just once in all competitions this season – coming in the 4-1 EFL Cup win at Sheffield United in late August.
