Daily Trust - - SPORT - By Mansur Abubakar @mansur_112

Su­per Eagles for­ward and Le­ices­ter City’s most ex­pen­sive sign­ing in his­tory Ahmed Musa says he can’t wait to start his English Premier League adventure with the cham­pi­ons as a new term be­gins next month.

The for­mer Loko­mo­tiv Moscow player in a twit­ter post added that he’s happy in his new en­vi­ron­ment in­clud­ing a pic­ture of him along­side last sea­son’s PFA Player of the year Riyad Mahrez who’s ex­pected to re­main with the Foxes de­spite mas­sive in­ter­est from Arse­nal and Barcelona.

“All happy and ready to kick start the EPL sea­son, can’t wait.” Musa wrote yes­ter­day. The for­mer Eagles skip­per and his Le­ices­ter City team­mates are in to Los An­ge­les, United States for their re­main­ing phase of the pre­sea­son prepa­ra­tions be­fore open­ing their EPL cam­paign against newly pro­moted side Hull City on Au­gust 13th.

Musa who is yet to open his goal-scor­ing ac­count with Clau­dio Ranieri’s men but has daz­zled in the test games fea­tured so far and has left no one in doubt that he is worth the mil­lions splashed on him.

Had his first sil­ver­ware as the Premier League cham­pi­ons won on penal­ties (6-5) away at Celtic last Satur­day evening af­ter a 1-1 draw in nor­mal time.

The next task for Musa and his col­leagues is the clash with French gi­ants Paris Saint Ger­main at the Stub Hub Cen­ter in Cal­i­for­nia on July 30 in what will be a meet­ing of last sea­son’s Premier League cham­pi­ons against the Ligue 1 win­ners.
