Saudi club Al Nassr’s supporters have handed Ahmed Musa an 'amazing reception' following his arrival from Leicester City in a four-year deal.

After an underwhelming two-year union with the Foxes, Musa left England in search of a greener pasture in the Saudi Professional League.

The Nigeria international was warmly received by fans at the King Khalid International Airport in the country’s capital Riyadh.

And the versatile forward has lauded the encomium showered on him by the Knights of Najd faithful.

“What an amazing reception here in Saudi Arabia. I want to thank each and every person who came out and welcomed me at the airport,” Musa tweeted.

“I am really humbled. I can feel the excitement and energy already, I am looking forward to this historic opportunity."

Musa will be looking forward to impress when Al Nassr trade tackles with Al Jazira in the Arab Club Champions Cup at Mohammed Bin Zayed Stadium on August 13.
