have announced the signing of Palestinian goalkeeper Ramzi Saleh.

Saleh joins Al Masry’s 2015/16 squad after terminating his contract with Assiouty Sport as the team were relegated from the last season.

Ramzi Saleh featured for Cairo giants during the 2008/09 season. He earned the chance to prove himself following unconvincing performances from Amir Abdel-Hamid at that time.

The Egyptian-born Palestinian goalkeeper proved himself worthy of being Al Ahly’s No 1 when he helped the Reds claim the league title that season and even won an Egyptian Premier League Player of the Month award. However, with Saleh picking up an injury before the start of the following season, and the arrival of Sherif Ekramy in the winter transfer window, he decided to move to Sudanese outfits Al-Merrikh SC.

Saleh opted to return to Egypt as his time in Sudan was not as successful as a result of inconsistency and injury, while former Al Ahly and Merrikh manager Hossam El-Badry had brought Essam El-Hadary to the Sudanese giants.

The 35-year-old goalkeeper signed contracts with Zamalek and Haras El-Hodood but both deals were broken off and in July 2011, Ramzi Saleh joined Smouha. Saleh then moved to Misr El-Maqassa and finally to Assiouty Sport before joining Port Said-based club Al Masry – his fifth club in Egypt.

On the international level, Ramzi Saleh is the most capped player for Palestine and played in the 2015 AFC Asian Cup – the country’s first-ever appearance in history.
