Burkinabé international Mohamed Koffi is set to join Iraqi Premier League side Al-Shorta, according to their manager Mohamed Youssef.

Koffi, 29, confirmed his departure from Zamalek in an open letter after the club’s chairman accused him of faking an injury, and the Iraqi side are set to add the defender to their ranks.

Former Al Ahly and Smouha coach Mohamed Youssef, who was appointed as the club’s manager in June, confirmed that the defender is joining the club this summer.

Aside from his departure, the defender also decided to file a complaint against the Whites at FIFA as he claimed he hasn’t received his wages for three months, which gives him the right to terminate his contract.

Mohamed Koffi joined the White Castle in June 2014 from Iraqi outfit Duhok SC on a free transfer, and has made over 50 league appearances for Zamalek, helping them winning the title on his debut season.

Al-Shorta finished in seventh place last season in the Iraqi Premier League, and will be hoping to bolster their ranks for a better results in the upcoming season.
