Hegazi was also linked with a move to Tottenham and Leicester City, but the latter signed ex-club teammate Jonny Evans on a three-year contract.

Should the former Al Ahly defender return to the Premier League, he will become the fourth Pharaoh in the competition alongside Arsenal’s Mohamed Elneny, Liverpool winger Mohamed Salah, and Ramadan Sobhi of Huddersfield.

Hegazi has made 42 appearances for West Brom across all competitions, featuring in every Premier League game. He managed to score two goals and helped his side keep 10 clean sheets.
