Mahmoud Kahraba to leave Ittihad Jeddah after loan deal expires
Ittihad Jeddah have announced that they will not sign Egypt international Mahmoud Kahraba on a permanent basis after his loan spell expired.
The 24-year-old winger was named in Hector Cuper’s final 23-man squad that will travel to the World Cup in Russia next June.
He joined Ittihad Jeddah on a one-year loan in 2016, but after some exceptional performances, which saw him score 16 goals in 20 league games, the club decided to extend his loan spell for a further year.
However, he failed to recapture his old form in his second spell, managing just six goals in 29 appearances, which made the club decide against offering him a permanent deal.
Overall, he made 53 appearances for the Saudi side, scoring 24 goals and providing nine assists, helping them win two titles, the Saudi Cup and the Crown Prince Cup.
13 more players were announced that they will leave the club, most notably Fahad Al Ansari and team captain Adnan Fallatah.
It is unclear whether Kahraba will continue with Zamalek next season or move abroad, with the player announcing his intentions to move to a European club after the World Cup.
