Nigeria forward Ahmed Musa has rejoined CSKA Moscow on a six-month loan deal from Leicester City.

Musa passed a medical on Monday night, and returns to the club he left in July 2016 after failing to tie down a regular place in the Foxes first team.

The 25-year-old has only made 18 league appearances for Leicester since joining in the summer of 2016 and has spent most of that time out of the match-day squad, putting his place in Nigeria's World Cup squad in jeopardy.

He told KweséESPN exclusively on Monday night that he just wants a reset: "I have just signed and the good thing is that I am back and better now. Football starts again."
