Ahmed Musa for Leicester Medical Wednesday


Super Eagles Vice-captain, Ahmed Musa, will undergo a medical with Leicester City tomorrow before signing a five-year contract with the Premier League champions.

“Everything has been finalised and Musa will be in England for his medical on Wednesday,” Musa’s agent Tony Harris told BBC Sport monday.

Russian champions CSKA Moscow announced the 23-year-old Ahmed Musa will depart Moscow today for England.

Leicester, who first put in a bid for the jet-heeled winger in January, have now agreed a transfer fee of $21 million.

The surprise champions of the Premier League will make the Nigeria international their fourth signing thus far, with centre-back Luis Hernandez, goalkeeper Ron-Robert Zieler and midfielder Nampalys Mendy having already signed.

Musa’s soon to be former coach Leonid Slutsky said the Nigerian – who scored 53 goals in 161 matches for CSKA since joining them in 2012 – would be ideal for the Premier League.
“If you look at the way things are done over there you’ll see he is a player just made for English football,” Slutsky said.

According to the BBC Musa rejected the advances of Leicester’s rivals Southampton, Everton and West Ham.
