Premier League champions Leicester City are set to break their club transfer record.

CSKA striker Ahmed Musa is set to fly in to Leicester tomorrow for a medical ahead of £16.6 million deal.

The 23-year-old is believed to have turned down Southampton, Everton and West Ham in favour of a move to the Foxes.

The Nigeria international forward has scored over 50 goals since joining CSKA in 2011.

Leicester have been boosted by the news that top scorer Jamie Vardy will be staying put after signing a new contract. 

They have also strengthened elsewhere with the signings of Hannover 96 goalkeeper Ron-Robert Zieler, French midfielder Nampalys Mendy, Spanish players Raul Uche and Luis Fernandez respectively as they look to increase the size of the squad with Champions League commitments in mind.
