Huddersfield Town coach David Wagner: Ramadan Sobhi is a real talent
Following the relegation of the Potters to the English Championship after finishing 19th in the league, Sobhi decided to stay in the Premier League and joined Huddersfield Town for an undisclosed fee on a three-year deal, with the club having the option of a further season.
“I’m very happy that we will be able to welcome Ramadan Sobhi to Huddersfield Town,” head coach David Wagner said about the deal. “He’s a real talent and has achieved a lot for a player who is only 21 years old, playing over 20 times for his country ahead of this summer’s World Cup.”
News about the transfer first emerged when the Egyptian Football Association confirmed earlier in June that the player was allowed to leave the Pharaohs’ pre-World Cup training camp to undergo a pre-transfer medical test at Huddersfield Town.
“Just as Jonas Lössl, Elias Kachunga and Laurent Depoitre did, Ramadan will join our club on the back of a challenging season.
“However, he already has a lot of the qualities that we look for in our ‘Terriers Identity’; he’s skilful, direct and very quick-thinking. He still has a lot of space to improve too, which is very exciting!
“We’re looking forward to working hard with Ramadan on the training pitch to give him every chance of success at Huddersfield Town.”
Sobhi started his football career with Al Ahly and made his debut with the first team just as he turned 16. After becoming a key player to the Red Devils, the player grabbed the attention of the national team and made his debut when he was 17 years old on 14 June 2015 in the first round of the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers.
During the 2016 African Cup of Nations in Gabon, Sobhi made four appearances with Egypt out of six games the team played.
Sobhi became the third player to join the West Yorkshire club this season, following goalkeeper Ben Hamer and Monaco defender Terence Kongolo who recently made his loan move permanent.
