Nigerian forward Ahmed Musa has left Leicester City for Saudi Arabian club Al-Nassr.

According to Kwesé ESPN, the 25-year-old signed a four year deal worth £14.8million, which could rise to £25million with add-ons.

The Nigeria international will join up with former Premier League colleague Nordin Amrabat, who joined Al-Nassr from Watford this summer.

Musa was part of the Super Eagles’ squad at the World Cup in Russia, scoring twice against Iceland in a 2-0 victory.

Disappointing spell at Leicester

Musa became the Foxes’ record signing when he joined them for about £16million from CSKA Moscow in 2016.

However, after scoring just two goals in 21 games at the King Power Stadium, he returned to the Russian side on a six-month loan agreement.

Back in Moscow, Musa scored six goals in 10 league games.

With the Super Eagles, the 25-year-old has scored 15 goals in 73 games since earning his first cap in 2010.
