Nigeria star Musa joins Leicester

10 July 2016, 05:14

Leicester, United Kingdom-Nigerian international winger Ahmed Musa became Premier League champions Leicester City's second acquisition in a week on Friday for what is believed to be a club record fee of 16.6 million ($22 million, 20 million euros).

The 23-year-old, who announced his talent globally in scoring a brace against Lionel Messi's Argentina at the 2014 World Cup, signed a four-year contract in England, ending a successful spell at CSKA Moscow.

"I feel very happy joining Leicester City, for me it's one of the best clubs and I feel very happy," Musa told Foxes Player HD.

"I joined because it's one of the best clubs in the Premier League and they are like a family. I'm very excited," added Musa, who scored 13 goals in 34 appearances for CSKA last season.

Musa, who CSKA asked too much for when Leicester asked about him in the transfer window in January, is the Foxes fourth signing of the close season.

Musa and former France Under-21 midfielder Nampalys Mendy, who joined from Ligue 1 side Nice on a four-year deal last Sunday for 13m, will bolster the Foxes squad for a tilt at the Champions League.

Their other two captures are German goalkeeper Ron-Robert Zieler, who was part of the 2014 World Cup-winning squad and signed from Bundesliga outfit Hannover 96, and Spanish defender Luis Hernandez, who arrived on a free transfer from Sporting Gijon.
