Super Eagles captain, Ahmed Musa has stated his reason for dumping Kano Pillars to sign for the Turkish Süper Lig club, Fatih Karagümrük, on a permanent deal.
The swashbuckling winger disclosed that the move was in tandem with the club's philosophy and his personal ambition.
Musa completed a free transfer to the Istanbul club on Thursday, signing a two-year contract with the option of an additional year.
The move ended his brief stay in the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL), where he penned a short-term deal.
Musa has now spoken out after finalizing the transfer.
"I was very impressed with the team's philosophy, style of play and it's clearly an ambitious club.
"I feel wanted and that's what made all the difference. I want to repay that faith. I can't wait to link up with my teammates and help the club achieve their ambitions," Musa told BBC Sport Africa.
Karagumruk was promoted to the Turkish top-flight in the 2019/2020 campaign, ending a 35-year wait for a return to the Super Lig.
