Nigeria international Ahmed Musa is expected to join up with the rest of the Leicester squad at the team training camp in Austria next week after completing his transfer from CSKA Moscow.
CSKA Moscow has moved quickly to replace Musa after agreeing a loan move for Ivorian giant striker, Lacina Traore.
Another Nigerian striker, Aaron Samuel, could have been the ex- Kano Pillars winger’s replacement at the army club, but he suffered a long-term knee injury and will be out for close to a year, africanFootball.com reports.
Traore has featured for Premier League side Everton and Monaco in France.
Musa’s transfer to Leicester will be announced at the weekend.
