Smouha sign five new players ahead of the new season
Two days after the end of the Egyptian Premier League and officially qualifying to the CAF Confederation Cup, Smouha SC have already begun to boost their squad, signing five new players.
Smouha announced the signings of five new players and a new manager on Monday, with former Zamalek boss Jorvan Vieira taking over from Helmy Toulan.
The first player in the list is Mansoura’s striker, Mohamed Shahin, who moved to the Blues on a free transfer after the end of his contract with Mansoura. Shahin was eyed by Wadi Degla, Ittihad of Alexandria and ENPPI, but opted to sign a 5-year contract with Smouha starting from the 2016-2017 season.
Smouha’s second signing is relegated Ittihad El-Shorta defender Khaled Sotohi, who also moved to the Alexandrian club on a free transfer following the end of his contract. Sotohi signed a three-year contract to strengthen the team’s defense.
Entag El-Harby defender Sayed Farid is Smouha’s third signing, moving to the club for a transfer fee of 500,000 EGP.
In an unexpected switch, ENPPI’s Salah Soliman has agreed terms with Smouha, just one month after renewing his contract with the petroleum side. Smouha’s official website announced the deal stating that the player is set to join the team starting from the upcoming season. Various reports state that Soliman cost Smouha a hefty 7 million EGP.

Finally, Smouha added Al Masry top scorer to bolster their ranks, Ahmed Raouf. The former Al Ahly striker joins the Blue Wave on a free transfer after reports claimed that he had signed for Zamalek.
On Saturday, Smouha completed the signing of Burkinabe international striker Banou Diawara from Algerian club JS Kabylie following their third place league finish.
