The final three-man shortlist for the 2017 CAF African Footballer of the Year includes Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Nigeria international and Chelsea star Victor Moses could not make the final three.

Meanwhile, Former Nigeria stars Justice Christopher and Victor Ezeji have urged Ahmed Musa to quit Leicester City in January as the winger  has found game time limited at the King Power Stadium.

Musa, who joined the Foxes from CSKA Moscow for a club record £19.5m in 2016, has appeared just once for the former Premier League champions, a second round Carabao Cup tie against Championship side Sheffield United, in which he scored.

The Super Eagles forward had been linked with a move to Hull City – where he would have reunited with his former CSKA Moscow manager Leonid Slutsky – the summer – but a transfer failed to come to fruition.

However, there are rumours that he  might return to former club CSKA Moscow, while Aston Villa are also interested in the player.
