Ahmed Musa Joins Turkish Club, Fatih Karagumruk


After a brief stint in the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) with Kano Pillars, Super Eagles captain, Ahmed Musa has completed his return to Europe top-flight action.

Turkish Super Lig club, Fatih Karagumruk announced on Thursday the signing of Musa on a free transfer and the move marked the end of his short romance with Pillars consummated in April 2021.

Though Karagumruk are yet to disclose the contractual details, the 28-year-old is expected to boost the club’s push in the Turkish top-flight in this new campaign season.

The Nigerian captain left Saudi Arabia’s Al Nassr last year October after helping the Riyadh-based outfit win the Saudi Pro League and the Super Cup. He becomes the second African star in David Sassarini’s team after Senegal’s Alassane Ndao.

In their Instagram message, the club wrote; “Ahmed Musa and Karagumruk, we added a 28-year-old Nigerian attacker to our squad. 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 Nigerian 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.”

Musa is returning to Europe for the first time since 2018 after his underwhelming experience at Leicester City. During his two-year stint at the King Power Stadium, the Nigerian International could only manage just two goals in 21 Premier League games.

Before moving to England, the 28-year-old enjoyed success at CSKA Moscow where he won three Russian Premier League titles, two Super Cups and one Russian Cup – With Goal.com reports
