Solution:

Environment variable

From Git version 2.3.0, you can use the environment variable GIT_SSH_COMMAND and pass the -v verbose argument like this:

GIT_SSH_COMMAND="ssh -v" git clone example

To be extra verbose, make it -vvv :

GIT_SSH_COMMAND="ssh -vvv" git clone example

Git config

From Git version 2.10.0, which will in Ubuntu 17.04’s repos, you can save this configuration globally, or per repo as in this example:

git config core.sshCommand "ssh -vvv"
git pull
