Super Eagles forward , Ahmed Musa, is looking to start his time with Saudi Arabia Premier League club, Al Nassr on a positive note even as he expresses delight to the club for their warm welcome, Completesportsnigeria. com reports.
Musa, 25, penned a four-year contract with Al Nassr who finished in third position in the Saudi Premier League last season on Thursday night.
The move put an end to his two year stay with English Premier League club, Leicester City where he struggled to pin down a regular shirt despite arriving from CSKA Moscow of Russia on a then £16m club record transfer deal.
He spent the second half of last season on loan at CSKA Moscow.
There were reported interests in his services by European clubs especially after he impressed for Nigeria at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia, but the former Kano Pillars star opted for a more lucrative contract at Al Nassr.
“🇸🇦 I am thankful for the opportunity to start the next chapter of my career with you. I am so excited and can’t wait to get started! Thank you all for the warm welcome! I hope we create many great memories together inshallah 🙏 @AlNassrFC @AlNassrSaudiFCe,” Musa wrote on his Twitter handle on Friday.
Musa has also thanked his former club, Leicester City for their support during his two-year stay with the Foxes.
“I want to thank everybody at Leicester football club for making my time in England a pleasure. Although it was short I have a lot of experiences I will cherish forever. No matter what this club allowed me to fulfill my dream of playing in the Premier League and for that I am forever grateful. I want to wish the team all success in the future, I will be watching and supporting! 💙 #LFC,” he wrote on his Instagram page.
