Ahmed Musa signs for Saudi Arabia club side Al-Nassr, based in Riyadh. His move came as a shock to Nigerians having played outstandingly for Nigeria at the World Cup.
Musa, 25, was the Foxes’ record signing when he moved to the King Power for £16.6million in 2016, but failed to hold down a place and was loaned back to his old club CSKA Moscow for part of last season.
Musa found the net six times in 10 appearances for CSKA Moscow, three times as many as he managed in his 21 Premier League appearances.
He scored twice at the World Cup, with both goals coming against Iceland in the Group D clash.
Al-Nassr Saudi Club said Musa had signed a four-year contract but did not disclose the transfer fee. The announcement was also accompanied by a bizarre video, that did not even feature their new signing — only highlights of his playing career to date.
The clip consisted of a flight taking off from London directly to Al-Nassr, with an unidentified man making his way through security.
There was some footage of Musa’s past exploits, which could be viewed out of plane windows.
More detail about him would be revealed later.
