Mohamed Awad to join Saudi side Al Wehda, says club president
President of newly-promoted Saudi Arabian club Al Wehda revealed that his side will sign Ismaily keeper Mohamed Awad on a season-long loan.
After securing qualification to the Saudi Professional League, Al Wehda’s president said in an interview with satellite channel ON Sport that his side are on the verge of signing the Ismaily keeper as they’re looking to bolster their squad ahead of the upcoming season.
According to president Hatem Khaimi, the Egyptian national team goalkeeper will play for Al Wehda on loan for one season.
Awad has been recently showing a lot of promising displays for his team, who sit second on the Egyptian Premier League table. The 25-year-old conceded 20 goals in 30 appearances with the Ismailia-based team this season.
His recent form has earned him a call up to the national team as he has featured in the Pharaohs’ last friendly game against Greece.
With Zamalek keeper Ahmed El-Shennawy out with an injury, Awad is highly expected to be traveling with the national team to Russia for the 2018 World Cup in two months.
