Al Ahly sign Burkina Faso international Moussa Yedan from Coton Sport
African giants Al Ahly have managed to secure the services of Burkinabé midfielder Moussa Yedan for four and a half years ahead of the January transfer window.
Football director Hady Khashaba has announced the signing of Coton Sport midfielder Moussa Yedan on the 19th of this month and stated the 24-year-old would begin training with the team in late December.
The deal reportedly cost Al Ahly $200,000 to complete and an agreement has been reached with the player regarding his salary: $150,000 per season.
The Burkina Faso international has been on international duty this week as ‘The Stallions’ visited Algeria as part of the second leg of the Brazil 2014 World Cup qualifications. Yedan was part of the squad but didn’t participate in his team’s 1-0 loss.
Yedan started his career in the Burkinabé club Étoile Filante before attracting the attention of Cameroon champions Coton Sport FC in early 2013. He garnered much attention during his club’s campaign in the 2013 CAF Champions league, managing to reach the semi-finals to meet Al Ahly and subsequently losing as the Egyptians managed to win the title.
Starting eight matches in the competition, two of those against Al Ahly, and with a goal to his name against Angola’s Recreativo Libolo, it’s safe to say Yedan has been an essential component for his club.
With Mohamed Abou-Treika’s expected retirement after the Club World Cup in December, Moussa Yedan will bolster Ahly’s midfield and would be a decent addition to the squad.
Regarding his position, the left footed player is mainly a center midfielder capable of playing on the left of midfield or behind the striker; he is a pretty versatile player who will join Ahmed Khairy and Sabry Rahil as the club’s most recent signings.
