Super Eagles forward Ahmed Musa was given a special welcome by his new club Al Nassr FC in the early hours of Friday after completing a deal to sign the striker from English side Leicester City.
Musa has been a subject of transfer speculation at Leicester this summer after spending the last six months on loan at former club CSKA Moscow and the Saudi side’s persistence paid off after they agreed a fee with the former England champions on Thursday.
To herald the arrival of their new king, Al Nassr’s official Twitter handle @AlNassrSaudiFCe posted a well designed video of a passenger traveling from London, England to Al Nassr FC in the early hours of Friday morning.

The tweet containing the video was followed up immediately by the announcement of the permanent signing of the former Kano Pillars striker.
“#ALNASSR signed a four year contract with Nigerian left winger and former @LCFC player Ahmed Musa @Ahmedmusa718, welcome to the Global Club Ahmed!” read the succeeding tweet.
Musa, Nigeria’s highest ever scorer at the World Cup finals has joined the rest of his teammates in their pre-season camp in Switzerland and might make his debut in their pre-season friendly with Dubai side Baniyas Sports club in Holland on Sunday.
Musa’s new club finished third in the Saudi Professional League last season and will play in the Asian Champions League next term under the tutelage of Jose Daniel Carreño who is starting a second stint at the club.
