Al Ahly have officially announced the signing of attacking midfielder Mohamed ‘Mido’ Gaber on a five-year deal from Misr El-Maqassa, with Ahmed El-Sheikh heading in the opposite direction on loan.

Al Ahly announced the signing of Misr El-Maqassa’s Mido Gaber on Tuesday, as the league champions continue to strengthen their squad for next season.

The 23-year-old has attracted interest from the Cairo giants following his superb performances with the Fayoum-based side this season, especially in the CAF Confederation Cup.

Al Ahly are believed to be paying a fee in the region of 6 million EGP for Mido Gaber, with attacking midfielder Ahmed El-Sheikh heading in the opposite direction on a one-year loan deal. The Cairo giants signed El-Sheikh from Maqassa just one year ago in a reported 8.5 million EGP deal.

It is worth mentioning that Mido was also linked with Zamalek, with the Whites’ chairman Mortada Mansour claiming he had reached an agreement with El-Maqassa.

Gaber can play as a playmaker or on both wings, and managed to score five league goals and register nine assists with El-Maqassa this season.
