Leicester City have confirmed their fifth signing of the summer in the shape of CSKA Moscow forward Ahmed Musa, subject to international clearance.

The Nigerian signed a four-year contract for a club-record fee of around £16m.

The 23-year-old has expressed his delight at joining the side.

“I feel very happy joining Leicester City, for me it’s one of the best clubs and I feel very happy.

“I joined because it’s one of the best clubs in the Premier League and they are like a family,” he told LCFC.com.

He scored 13 goals in 30 league games for the Russian club last term.

Musa made his international debut against Madagascar in September 2010 and has scored 11 times in 58 appearances for the Super Eagles.

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

Musa is the first Nigerian to score more than once in a FIFA World Cup match after scoring twice against Argentina in the 2014 FIFA World Cup.
