Wael Gomaa, Al Ahly’s football director, announced earlier this week that the team signed a Nigerian player for three years without mentioning any names.
Gomaa said that the player’s International Transfer Certificate (ITC) did not arrive yet, and the transfer will be announced once the club receives it.
The Nigerian striker has come through Bayelsa United’s youth ranks and has scored 18 goals for the senior team.
Ebimobowei had a trial period at SK Brann in January 2012 and Norwegian media described the striker as “strong, fast and skillful”.
UPDATE (January 14, 2015): Al Ahly have confirmed the transfer via their official website and revealed the fee was $100,000 (715K EGP).
