El-Hadary set to join Al-Taawoun after agreeing personal terms – Reports
Egyptian legendary goalkeeper Essam El-Hadary has reportedly reached an agreement to seal a transfer to Saudi side Al-Taawoun, according to reports in Saudi Arabia.
Recently, the Saudi Football Federation decided to allow clubs to buy foreign goalkeepers as part of the non-domestic four players list, which made El-Hadary express his approval of this decision, saying that he is open to consider any offers from the Saudi league.
“After this decision, I’m open to consider any offer from the Saudi league. If the suitable offer arrives, why not hang my gloves in Saudi Arabia?,” the 44-year-old told MBC Pro Sports.
According to Saudi reports, El-Hadary has agreed personal terms with Al-Taawoun, and the goalkeeper is set to join the Saudi Pro League side this summer.
El-Hadary, who had a major role in the AFCON with Egypt, looks set to play for his ninth club in his career, as it seems that he’s ready for another challenge to keep him fit for the World Cup if Egypt qualifies.
This past season, there were four Egyptians plying their trade in Saudi Arabia: Sherif Hazem (Al-Wehda), Ahmed Magdy (Al-Wehda), Mohamed Abdel-Shafy (Al Ahli), Mahmoud Abdel Moneim ‘Kahraba’ (Ittihad FC).
