Official: Zamalek sign Ibrahim Abdel-Khalek from Smouha
Smouha midfielder Ibrahim Abdel-Khalek has signed for Zamalek on a three-year deal for 5 million Egyptian pounds, the Egyptian champions have officially announced.
Both club chairmen, Mortada Mansour and Farag Amer, previously said that a deal was in the works for the player’s transfer to the White Castle.
The 29-year-old midfielder also previously announced that he will be moving to the White Castle. The player’s signing means that Ahmed Hamoudi, Tarek Hamed and Ibrahim will play once again side-by-side having done the same during the 2013/14 season at Smouha. Hamoudi joined Zamalek from Swiss champions FC Basel earlier today.
Abdel-Khalek will have to compete with Ibrahim Salah, Ahmed Tawfik and Tarek Hamed for a starting spot in Zamalek’s star-studded XI.
Ibrahim has been an integral part of Smouha’s recent historic achievements, such as finishing second behind Al Ahly during the 2013/14 season, reaching the group stage of the CAF Champions League and reaching Egypt’s Cup final.
