Premier League champions, Leicester City sign Nigerian winger, Ahmed Musa

The Nigeria international who enjoyed an impressive season in leading CSKA Moscow to the Russian title has been signed by Premier League winners, Leicester City and will team up with the Claudio Ranieri’s champions for the 2016-17 campaign.

Leicester City have completed the signing of Ahmed Musa from CSKA Moscow for an undisclosed fee, the club confirmed on Friday.

The Premier League champions have committed the Nigeria international to a four-year deal at the King Power Stadium.

Musa becomes the Foxes’ fourth senior summer signing following the captures of Nampalys Mendy, Ron-Robert Zieler and Luis Hernandez.

“Known for his electric pace and clinical finishing, Musa enjoyed his most productive season for CSKA Moscow yet in 2015-16, netting 13 goals in 30 Russian Premier League games to fire them to the Russian title,” Leicester said in the statement welcoming the Nigerian to the East Midlands.

“Blessed with natural speed and agility, Musa can operate either on the wing or upfront.”

Speaking to the club’s website, Musa said: “I look forward to seeing the fans in the new season and I will do my best to make them happy.”

“I joined because it’s one of the best clubs in the Premier League and they are like a family. That’s why I joined Leicester City and I’m very excited.”
