Egypt giants are reportedly interested in signing Colchester United’s in the summer transfer window.

The Whites are monitoring the English right-back and could sign him for free, as his contract with the League two side expires next summer, according to Bleacher Report.

The Website reported that Richard Brindley has Egyptian parentage, which made Zamalek officials interested in signing him, as he wouldn’t be considered as a foreign player.

The 23-year-old began his career with Norwich City, but was released by the club before making a single first-team appearance, to join Chelmsford City then Chesterfield, before joining Rotherham United in 2013, helping them to promotion to the English Championship.

Brindley was loaned by Rotherham to Scunthorpe United, Oxford United, and Colchester United, where he had an impressive loan-spell and his deal became permanent.

It’s worth mentioning that the Whites have already three right-backs in their squad, Hosny Fathi, Osama Ibrahim, and Shawky El-Said, but none of them has impressed this season.

The Englishman has six assists in 38 games across all competitions this season and his side are currently 10th in the EFL League Two, two points away from the promotion play-offs.
