CSKA Moscow coach Leonid Slutsky has confirmed Ahmed Musa is leaving the club to move to the Premier League, possibly with champions Leicester.

Leicester were linked with a move for the speedy Nigeria winger in January but he has since also been rumoured to be on his way to West Ham and Southampton.

Musa has been playing in Moscow since 2012 and he enjoyed his most prolific season in front of goal in 2015-16, scoring 13 goals in 29 Russian Premier League outings.

“He’ll be leaving Tuesday,” Slutsky told Russian media on Sunday.

“And if you look at the way things are done over there you’ll see he is a player just made for English football.”

Claudio Ranieri has been busy in the transfer market since Leicester won the Premier League for the first time in May.
