Abdel-Shafy has been reasonably impressive for Al Ahli, assisting twice in 25 games in all competitions this season, however, it is believed that he is set to return to his former side.

Newly appointed manager Augusto Inácio doesn’t mind signing the left-back, as the club desperately need strengthening.

Having initially signed for the Whites back in 2009, the defender went on to make over 150 appearances for the club during a five-year spell, scoring ten goals and winning the Egyptian Cup twice.
