Super Eagles skipper Ahmed Musa has officially left the Nigeria Professional Football League side, Kano Pillars for a Turkish side, Fatih Karagümrük after signing a one year contract.
The deal is believed to be a lucrative one for Musa who becomes the fifth player to arrive at the club in the summer transfer window, after Aleksandar Pesic, Kerim Frei, Samed Onur and Erhun Öztümer.
Karagümrük reportedly beat Galatasaray and Beşiktaş to the signature of the winger.
“We added the 28-year-old Nigerian offensive player to our squad. During his career, he played for clubs such as VVV Venlo, CSKA Moscow and Leicester City. He scored 15 goals in 87 matches for the Nigerian National Team,” the club commented at the unveiling of the former Pillars star.
The 28-year-old player, who transferred from CSKA Moscow to Leicester City for 19.5 million Euros in 2016, signed with Al-Nassr in 2018 for 16.5 million Euros before moving back to his boyhood club.
Musa, who can play on the wings and forward, has played 87 matches and scored 15 goals in the Nigerian National Team, where he has been playing since 2010.
