Premier League champions Leicester City have agreed a deal with CSKA Moscow to sign Nigeria forward Ahmed Musa, the player’s agent disclosed on Monday.

The 23-year-old, who joined CSKA in 2012 and scored 54 goals in 168 games, is set to sign for a club record fee at the Foxes.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) recalls that Leicester City stunned all last season on their way to the English title.

“Everything has been finalised and Musa will be in England for his medical on Wednesday,’’ his agent, Tony Harris, said.

It was learnt that Musa had earlier turned down offers from Southampton, Everton and West Ham.

CSKA Moscow coach Leonid Slutsky admitted the Nigerian, who can play as winger or striker, is on his way out of the club.

“He’ll be leaving on Tuesday,” Slutsky told the Russian media. “If you look at the way things are done over there, you’ll see he is a player just made for English football,” he added.

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.

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

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) was established by the Federal Government of Nigeria in May 1976 to gather and distribute news on Nigeria and cover events of interest to Nigeria at the international level for the benefit of the Nigerian Media and the Public.
