Super Eagles star, Ahmed Musa has
revealed that he wanted to stay in the
Premier League, but had no choice but to
leave Leicester City.
The Nigeria striker left the King Power Stadium for
Saudi Arabian side Al Nassr in a deal believed to
be worth £15million and while Musa is expected
to be handsomely paid by his new club, he said it
was City who drove the deal and not him.
City paid £16million to CSKA Moscow for Musa’s
services in 2016 but he made just one appearance
for City last season as he fell out of favour.
“I wanted to stay in England because that has
been my dream for years but what will you do
when you’re told a bid has been accepted for
you? I had to move to where I know I will be
celebrated,” Musa is quoted as saying by
“Talks have been on about how I moved for the
money but nobody has considered the fact that
Leicester City also sold me for the money.
“Transfers can only happen if both parties agree to
it and that was my case.”
