OFFICIAL: Mostafa Fathi joins Saudi side Al Taawoun
Egyptian winger Mostafa Fathi officially joined Saudi Arabian side Al Taawoun FC from Zamalek on a one-year loan deal.
After brief negotiations between both clubs, Fathi signed a one-year loan contract with an option to buy and will move to the Saudi Professional League for $1.4 million in addition to $600,000 that the player will receive.
Recently Fathi was on the radar of Italian side F.C. Crotone, but apparently, the player and his club decided to go with the Saudi Arabian offer. It is worth mentioning that Torino made a bid to sign the young Pharaoh earlier this year but was deemed low by Zamalek’s president Mortada Mansour.
Veteran goalkeeper Essam El-Hadary, who also joined Al Taawoun on June 28 from Wadi Degla for one year, was present during the signing event of the 23-year-old winger.
“I would like to thank Turki El-Sheikh and the club’s administration. I hope I can help Al Taawoun win various championships,” Fathi told Al Taawoun’s official Twitter account.
After joining Zamalek in 2013, Fathi had 117 appearances with the White Knights in which he scored 21 goals and made 11 assists.
