Nigeria international forward Ahmed Musa has sealed a big-money transfer from Premier League side Leicester City to Al-Nassr of Saudi Arabia.

The 25-year-old has penned a four-year deal reportedly worth an initial £14.8million, which could rise to £25million.

Musa had completed a then-club record £16million transfer to Leicester from CSKA Moscow in July 2016, but he struggled to justify the huge fee, scoring just twice in 21 Premier League appearances before seeking a loan return to the Russian side 18 months later.

Speculation surrounding the deal had heightened in recent weeks, but has now been confirmed after the Saudi club announced a deal for the World Cup star on Twitter.

Musa becomes Al-Nassr's second big summer acquisition after Morocco international Nordin Amrabat.
