Ahmed Musa: Leicester City sign forward for club-record £16m fee

Leicester City have signed Nigeria international Ahmed Musa from CSKA Moscow on a four-year contract for a club-record fee of around £16m.

Ahmed Musa scored 54 goals in 168 games for CSKA Moscow

Musa, 23, joins the Premier League champions after helping CSKA win the Russian title.

Southampton, Everton and West Ham were interested in the forward.

Musa is Leicester’s fourth signing of the summer after goalkeeper Ron-Robert Zieler, defender Luis Hernandez and midfielder Nampalys Mendy.


Leicester’s new signing joined CSKA in 2012 and scored 54 goals in 168 games, and has scored 11 times in 58 appearances for Nigeria since making his debut in 2010.

He scored twice in his country’s 3-2 defeat by Argentina at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, becoming the first Nigerian to score twice in a World Cup finals match.

His first goal in that Group F game was his country’s fastest at the tournament, coming after just four minutes.
