Super Eagles striker, Ahmed Musa has ended his disappointing spell with Leicester City of England and has penned a four-year contract with Al Nassr FC of Saudi Arabia.
Musa who moved to Leicester from CSKA Moscow endured an unforgettable time with the former EPL Champions and was sent on loan to his former club last year where he picked up the pieces of his career.
The 25-year-old Musa, a former highest goal scorer in the Nigerian Professional League (NPFL), was Leicester’s record signing when he moved to the King Power for £16.6 million in 2016, but failed to hold down a place before he was loaned back to his old club for part of last season.
He was to play a key part in CSKA’s season by netting six goals in 10 appearances at the Russian club, three times as many as he scored for the English team in 21 appearances.
Musa took his form to the Russia 2018 World Cup where he scored two goals for the Eagles against Iceland with the second goal voted as the eighth best goal at the Mundial.
Al-Nassr announced the signing of Musa via their Twitter handle, saying he has signed a four-year contract but did not disclose the transfer fee.
Al-Nassr finished third in the Saudi-Arabian professional league last season, qualifying for the Asian Champions League play-offs in the process.
This is double joy for Musa as he and his new wife, Juliet, welcomed a baby boy last month added to the N2 million he got for scoring two goals at the world cup from one of the sponsors of the team.
