Nigerian forward heads to Saudi Arabia

TRANSFER: Ahmed Musa

AHMED MUSA has left Leicester City for Saudi Arabian club Al-Nassr.

Musa has signed a four-year contract with the team for an undisclosed fee which is reported around £17 million.

Al Nassr beat several European clubs to sign the 25-year-old who impressed at the 2018 Fifa World Cup in Russia.

Musa featured for Nigeria at the recent World Cup finals in Russia, scoring both goals in a win over Iceland.

The 25-year-old was Leicester's record signing when he joined them for about £16m from CSKA Moscow in 2016.

But after just two goals in 21 games he was loaned back to the Russian side last season.
