Musa passes medical to land Leicester transfer record

REIGNING English Premier League champions, Leicester City on Friday completed the signing of Ahmed Musa from CSKA Moscow for an undisclosed fee, the club has confirmed.

The Foxes have committed the Nigeria international to a four-year deal at the King Power Stadium after passing his medicals on Friday.

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

It is believed that Musa’s sign-on fee is worth around £16 million.

“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, the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) winner said he is delighted to have joined one of the biggest clubs in the world.

“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,” Musa who featured at the 2010 and 2014 World Cup finals stated.
