Nigerian winger Ahmed Musa leaves Saudi club Al Nassr

Nigerian winger Ahmed Musa has left Saudi side Al Nassr, the club confirmed on Monday.

Musa, 28, joined Al Nassr in 2018 after a turbulent spell with Premier League club Leicester City.

In a post on social media, the Najd’s Knight established the jet-heeled forward’s exit while wishing him the very best.

Musa is now a free agent and is reported to have parted ways with the club mutually as he hopes to continue with his professional career in Europe.

Having completed his loan spell at CSKA Moscow, the Nigeria international joined the Asian outfit on a four-year contract from Leicester City.

Al Nassr beat several European clubs to the signing of the ex-Kano Pillars man who impressed at the 2018 Fifa World Cup in Russia with two goals in three matches.

Weeks later, he opened his Saudi Professional League account with a hat-trick as his team hammered Al Quadisiya 3-0 at Riyadh’s King Fahd Stadium.

In 58 appearances, he scored 11 goals and got 14 assists while helping the team win the 2018-19 Saudi top-flight diadem and the 2019 Saudi Super Cup.
