Ahmed Musa Dumps Kano Pillars For Turkish Super Lig Side

Super Eagles skipper Ahmed Musa has, on a free transfer, signed for Turkish side, Fatih Karagümrük, with the deal on the verge of being made official, according to Fotomac.

Galatasaray and Besiktas were reportedly beaten to the signing of the 28-year-old.

Musa quit Saudi Arabian club Al Nassr last October and was still a free agent despite teaming up with hometown club Kano Pillars over the past couple of months.

The Istanbul-based club finished 8th in the Turkish top-flight last season and boast the likes of former Arsenal goalkeeper Emiliano Vivian, Argentine midfielder Lucas Biglia and Italian forward Fabio Borini.

Musa has played for Dutch side VV Venlo and Russian giants CSKA Moscow before moving to Leicester City in 2016 for a then club-record transfer fee.

The former Leicester City attacker won the Russian Premier League three times, one Russian Cup and two Russian Super Cups and also lifted the Saudi League title with Al Nassr in 2019.
