Ahmed Musa moves back to CSKA Moscow after struggling in Leicester


Leicester has sent Nigeria forward Ahmed Musa back to CSKA Moscow on loan until the end of the season.

Musa joined Leicester from CSKA in 2016 but scored only twice in 21 games last season.

He spent much of this season with Leicester's reserve team and only played one game in the English League Cup, scoring against Sheffield United.

In a statement on the Russian club's website, Musa says CSKA is "truly my home, a champion team," adding, "I'm back in the red-and-blue family."

CSKA is likely to offer Musa regular game time as he prepares to represent Nigeria at the World Cup. Nigeria will face Croatia, Iceland and Argentina in the group stage.
