Ahmed Musa has re-signed for CSKA Moscow from Leicester City on loan until the end of the season.
Sky Sports News had reported that a deal had been agreed between the clubs earlier this week after the forward found opportunities limited at the King Power Stadium.
Musa joined Leicester from the Russian side for a club-record fee of £16m just 18 months ago, but has made only 18 appearances and scored two goals.
The deal comes after Leicester also allowed striker Leonardo Ulloa to join Premier League rivals Brighton on loan.
Islam Slimani has also been linked with a move away from Leicester this month, with Monaco willing to take the player, while Jamie Vardy has played down reports linking him with a move away from the club.
