Official: Al Ain complete permanent signing of Hussein El-Shahat



On-loan winger has joined UAE side Al Ain on a three-year deal, the club announced on Tuesday.

After being linked with a move to Egyptian champions Al Ahly, El-Shahat joined the UAE Arabian Gulf League side from Egyptian Premier League side Misr El-Makassa on a six-month loan deal during the winter transfer window.

The in-form player moved to Al Ain after his impressive performance with the Fayoum-based side where he scored nine goals and made four assists in 16 league appearances.

Since joining Al Ain, the Egypt international has been putting in some incredible performances, scoring seven goals and assisting 12 in 12 appearances for the club in all competitions, which pushed the club to make the deal permanent.

His form has seen him handed his first international call-up by Egypt manager Hector Cuper as he was among 17 foreign-based players who were included in the Pharaohs’ squad for March friendlies against Portugal and Greece.

The 25-year-old is also close to winning his first trophy with Al Ain as they currently top the league table on 44 points, four above second-placed Al Wahda with three games remaining.
