Egyptian Premier League giants Wadi Degla have signed Burkina Faso international Issouf Ouattara and Democratic Republic of Congo’s Rudy Manga.
The move for the Burkinabe international comes after he terminated his contract with Cyprus’ Ermis Aradippou.
Ouattara has reportedly failed to score in seven appearances in Cyprus and will join Wadi Degla on a free transfer.
The 28-year-old has featured for Portuguese sides União Leiria and Trofense, France’s Nîmes Olympique, Chernomorets Burgas of Bulgaria, Libya’s Al-Nasr Benghazi, and lastly Ermis Aradippou.
He has also represented the Stallions nine times, scoring once against Seychelles in the 2010 FIFA World Cup Qualifiers.
On the other hand, coach Mido has also secured the services of DR Congo’s Manga who becomes the seventh signing this summer.
Manga joins Wadi Degla this summer after Mohamed Abdel Monsef, Ahmed Samir, Ahmed Magdi, Ahmed El-Shennawy, Mohamed Hassan and Ouattara.
