Egypt international Karim Hafez returns to RC Lens on loan

Karim Hafez

international has completed his return to Ligue 2 side on loan from Belgian club Lierse SK.

Hafez spent the last season at the French club, where he enjoyed a successful campaign and was one of the main contributors to the team which failed to clinch promotion to Ligue 1 in the last few miles.

The Egyptian left-back rejoins Lens on a season-long loan after completing his medical for the club.

Lierse manager Roel Reymen confirmed earlier this month that the 21-year-old left back has no place in next season’s team as he doesn’t fit his plans. He reportedly drew interest from Bundesliga side SC Freiburg but apparently favoured a return to France.

The former Wadi Degla player was one of 15 foreign-based players named by Egypt manager Hector Cuper for the Pharaohs’ upcoming Uganda tie in the 2018 World Cup qualifiers.
