Al Ahly announced that the team’s star centre-back Ahmed Hegazi will be out of their clash against Cairo rivals Zamalek in the final week of the Egyptian Premier League, as he’s set to undergo a medical with his new team West Bromwich Albion.

As exclusively revealed on on Friday night, Al Ahly had accepted the offer that West Brom presented to have Ahmed Hegazi on a season-long loan.

West Brom are set to pay a loan fee in the region of €1 million to acquire the 26-year-old’s services for one year, having the option to buy for €4 million.

Hossam El Badry, Al Ahly’s manager, confirmed that Hegazi is out of the team’s plans for the upcoming match with Zamalek.
