Junior Ajayi’s agent: Ajayi will join Al Ahly
The agent of CS Sfaxien striker Junior Ajayi has confirmed the player will be joining Cairo giants Al Ahly, putting pen to paper on a four-year deal.
Since the departure of Gabon international Malick Evouna to Chinese side Tianjin Teda, Al Ahly have been looking to find a replacement in the attacking phase. Al Ahly have initiated contacts for the 20-year-old striker in the preceding month, before the deal has seen an acceleration in the previous hours.
“The deal is 100% done, Al Ahly and Sfaxien have reached an agreement regarding the transfer of Ajayi to Al Ahly,” Mahmoud Ouaddeni told CBC channel.
“Announcement of the deal will take place in the coming hours. The player will sign the contract via e-mail due to his presence with the Nigeria U-23 team in Rio de Janeiro for the Olympic games.”
“Negotiations begun to take a serious shape after Al Ahly closed the Ali Maaloul deal with the Tunisian club. Ajayi is a big threat on goal as a center forward but can also play on the wings,” Ouaddeni concluded.
