Super Eagles striker Ahmed Musa has left Premier League club, Leicester City for top Saudi club Al Nassr

Musa signed a 4-year contract with the Saudi club, although details of the deal remain scanty.

Al Nassir signed a four year contract with Nigerian left winger and former Leicester City  player Ahmed Musa. Ahmed Musa,, welcome to the Global Club Ahmed,” the club said  in a statement via twitter.

The 25 year old joined Leicester in 2016 for a club record £16.6million, joining from Russian military club CSKA Moscow.

He however struggled to nail down a starting spot in the East Midlands, restricted to substitute appearances.

With playing time dwindling under Claude Puel, he re-joined CSKA Moscow on loan in January 2018.

To Moscow with love

Musa again found his love for the back of the net adding 6 in 10 games during his loan spell.

That revival was rekindled at the 2018 World Cup  in Russia, where the winger-cum-striker scored twice in Nigeria’s 2-0 win over Iceland – the only win recorded by the Super Eagles at the mundial.
