Nigerian forward Ahmed Musa has been handed his favourite jersey number by English Premiership champions Leicester City following the completion of his move from CSKA Moscow.

Musa unveiled by Leicester City will dorn jersey number 7 which is vacant at the club and was last worn by Dean Hammond who recently made his loan move to Championship side Sheffield United permanent.

The speedy ace is attached to the number 7 as it is the shirt number of his idol and role model Cristiano Ronaldo.

23 year old Musa since moving to Europe in 2012 from Nigeria Professional League side Kano Pillars has maintained his love for the shirt number 7 which he wore at his first club VV Venlo but had to settle for 18 at CSKA Moscow as Zoran Tosic already has the number 7 shirt.

He will join the rest of his Leicester City teammates in their pre season camp in Austria for preparations ahead of the start of the season in England where they will take on FA Cup winners Manchester United in the Community shield that usually signals the start of a new football season in England.
