Al Ahly have signed Ghanaian striker John Antwi from , the Saudi Arabian club announced on Wednesday evening.

The Red Devils have secured the services of 22-year-old Ghanaian talisman for one million dollars, Al Shabab announced on their official Twitter account.

Antwi signed for Al Shabab from Ismaily in January for a reported $2.2 million, but the White Lions deemed the striker surplus to requirements, after scoring only four goals in Saudi Arabia.

Antwi is no stranger to the , as he spent two years at Ismaily, scoring 28 goals before being sold to Al Shabab. The Ghanaian also previously underwent a trial at Al Ahly, but was rejected by the manager at the time, Hossam El-Badry.

The former Egyptian league top scorer will join an Al Ahly strike-force desperate for goals as they look to rebound next year, as this season’s title race is all but over. The Red Devils are currently in third place, nine points behind their Cairo rivals Zamalek, who have one game in hand at the top of the table.
