According to The Daily Mail, after being invited over by manager Sam Allardyce, the 28-year-old free agent and former Leicester City forward arrived in the country on Tuesday and underwent medical tests ahead of training at West Brom on Wednesday.
The Nigeria international forward is understood to have impressed Allardyce and his coaching staff, who were hoping he would sign a contract until the end of the season and bolster their attacking options.
However, Albion’s Chinese owners have stretched their budget to the limit in the January window and are now struggling to release more funds to sign Musa.
And free-agent Musa may yet pursue other options with the likes of Burnley, Southampton, Brighton, and CSKA Moscow all understood to be either willing to make him an offer or inviting him in to train with them instead.
