Nigeria international Ahmed Musa has joined Saudi club Al-Nassr in a big money move away from Leicester City. He his signed a four-year contract.

Musa arrived at the King Power Stadium for a record fee of £16 million two years ago, but failed to settle in English Premier League and duly returned to CSKA Moscow on-loan for the second half of last season.

In total, Musa scored five goals in 33 matches for the Foxes and despite glimpses of promise he failed to convince the club’s hierarchy.

Musa attracted strong interest from several European clubs, but Al-Nassr won the race for the pacey forward’s signature.

The former VVV-Venlo striker scored two goals in three matches at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia, including a memorable strike against Iceland.
