Done Deal! Musa joins Saudi Arabia outfits Al Nassr

Super Eagles forward Ahmed Musa has officially joined Saudi Arabia outfits Al Nassr from Leicester City.

The 25-year-old’s signing was confirmed by the Knights on their official twitter handle on Friday morning.

Musa is believed to have joined the Asian side for £14.8m on a four-year contract deal that will see earn the biggest wage among African players.

The Nigeria international, who moved to the Kings Power Stadium for a record fee of £16 million in the summer of 2016, did not get enough playing time and opted for a return to CSKA Moscow on loan last season.

The former Kano Pillars forward scored five goals in 33 games for the Foxes before he returned to Russia and spent the second half of last season with his old club.

He caught the attention of the many European clubs, before agreeing to play for Riyadh-based outfit, after his impressive performance during the 2018 FIFA World Cup, scoring twice in Nigeria’s 2-0 win over Iceland in the group phase.
