Tottenham Hotspur are closely monitoring the performance of Nigeria U20 international Musa Yahaya at Portuguese setup Portimonense SC, according to the the midfielder’s intermediary Babawo Mohammed.
Spurs failed to secure a work permit for the Flying Eagles dazzler after he attained the age of majority last December and he has been shipped out on loan to continue his development, having penned a pre-contract in 2014.
“Musa Yahaya is a player of Tottenham Hotspur, they want him to play at Portimonense until he gets a work permit,” Babawo Mohammed told nigeriasoccernet.com.
“He has to play in a big league before he can get a permit. They are monitoring his performance and he is doing well.
“He has signed for Spurs and they are still paying him his allowances.”
In the January transfer window, the 18-year-old Musa Yahaya penned a six-month deal with Portimonense SC, who are challenging for promotion to the Primeira Liga.
