Cape Town - Nigeria international Ahmed Musa insists he will score goals at new club Leicester City, citing hard work and dedication as the key ingredients to his success.

The Jos-born star revealed that he always dreamt of playing in the Premier League and hopes to continue winning silverware with the Foxes, following his move from CSKA Moscow.

"I feel great. EPL is a league I always dreamt to play in and with the champions as my team, it's a great pleasure and fulfillment of this dream," he told AfricaFootball.

"I thank Almighty Allah for everything. It has been a worthwhile journey. I enjoyed my time at every club that I have played. The experiences at every club and country have been great. I still have a lot of good memories from all these clubs.

"I have no secret, but I believe in hard work, dedication to duty and determination to succeed. Above all, God has been there always to crown my efforts," he said.

The 23-year-old came on as a substitute in the 61st minute of the Premier League champions' 2-1 win over Oxford United in a pre-season friendly on Wednesday.

"I have never been under pressure at any club I have played for and here won't be different," he added.

"I will be myself at Leicester as there is no reason whatsoever to be under pressure, I know why I am here and I will put in my best."
