Egypt international Omar Gaber is the latest African set to ply his trade in the Major Soccer League, after penning a deal with newly formed Los Angeles FC.

The 25-year-old will officially join the LA club on-loan in the United States of America on 1 January 2018, from Swiss club Basel.

Gaber has struggled for game time since his move from Zamalek, but he will be confident to regain his form in the USA where he will link up with former Pharaohs boss Bob Bradley.

"I joined Los Angeles FC because I want to play, that did not happen with FC Basel so I decided to leave and try my luck with another side," he is quoted as saying.
"Bob Bradley helped convince me and him being the head coach made the decision to join an easy one," he added.

"I'm so happy to join Los Angeles FC they have a big project to build a very good team and I would like to be a part of that.

"I have many goals for the future one is to play again in Europe - especially the English Premier League," he concluded.
