OFFICIAL: Ahmed Musa returns to Europe


Nigeria captain Ahmed Musa has joined Turkish Super Lig outfit Fatih Karagumruk.

Musa arrives at the Turkish side as a free agent after a short stint with four-time Nigeria Professional Football League champions Kano Pillars.

The details of his contract with the club have not been revealed, but he has officially been unveiled by the Istanbul-based club.

Prior to returning to Nigerian, he left Saudi Arabia’s Al Nassr last year October after helping the Riyadh-based outfit win the Saudi Pro League and the Super Cup.

“We have added the 28-year-old Nigerian attacker to our squad,” read the club’s club statement.

“He played for clubs such as VVV Venlo, CSKA Moscow and Leicester City in his career. He scored 15 goals in 87 matches for the Nigeria National Team.

“We wish success to Ahmed Musa under the Karagumruk jersey, signed by our Vice President Serkan Hurma and our Sporting Director Murat Akin.”

He returns to Europe for the first time since his unsuccessful spell at Leicester City in 2018. During his time with the former English champions, Musa scored two goals in 21 Premier League appearances.

Nigeria national team coach Gernot Rohr will be pleased to see one of his main attackers return to Europe before the start of the crucial Fifa World Cup qualifiers in September and the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon year.
