LAGOS OCTOBER 27TH (NEWSRANGERS)-Nigeria’s Super Eagles’ captain Ahmed Musa has become a free agent after parting ways with current club Saudi Arabian giants Al Nassr. The Saudi Professional League side confirmed the 28-year-old’s departure from the club officially on Sunday night.

The Najd Knights, as the Saudi side Al Nassr are known, released the following statement on their official Twitter account.

“Thank you Nigerian falcon, wishing you all the best in the future Ahmed Musa!”

Musa, with eyes set on the European continent, recently turned down an opportunity to join Turkish Super Lig champions Istanbul Basaksehir.
