After struggling to make an impact in Leicester, Ahmed Musa has sought greener pasture in the Saudi Professional League. The Nigeria international has left Leicester City for Al-Nassr, the Saudi Arabian club has announced.

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

According to unconfirmed reports, Leicester City received a fee of £14.8m with several add-ons, which will see the deal rise to as high as £25m. The deal is expected to make him the highest-paid Nigerian footballer when the transfer fee is revealed.

The Super Eagles forward was the Leicester’s record signing when he moved to the English club for £16.6million in 2016, but struggled for playing time and was loaned back to his old club CSKA Moscow for part of last season.

But after just 4 goals in 33 games, he was loaned back to the Russian side last season.

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