Leicester's Ahmed Musa joins CSKA Moscow on loan until end of season

Leicester forward Ahmed Musa has returned to former club CSKA Moscow on loan until the end of the season.

The Nigeria international joined Leicester in a then club-record £16 million deal in Aug. 2016, and has since notched five goals in 33 appearances.

Musa has only managed one Leicester appearance this term however, when he found the net in a Carabao Cup clash at Sheffield United, and has now been farmed out to the Russian Premier League side, where he spent five seasons, racking up more than 50 goals.

"A deal has been agreed for Leicester City striker Ahmed Musa to rejoin former club CSKA Moscow on loan until the end of the 2017-18 campaign," Leicester confirmed on their official website.

"The 25-year-old Nigeria international joined Leicester City in the summer of 2016 after spending over four years with the Russian club - during which time he scored more than 50 goals in all competitions.

"CSKA currently sit fifth in the Russian Premier League, with the division currently on a winter break which runs until March.

"He will be eligible to feature in next month's Europa League round of 32 clash away to Red Star Belgrade in Serbia."
