Egyptian Premier League giants Zamalek SC have announced the departure of Ghanaian striker Nana Poku.

The 25-year-old forward only joined the White Knights in January, 2018 and he made 10 appearances in the Egyptian Premier League - scoring two goals in the process.

Poku arrived in Egypt in 2014 after signing for El Shorta and a year later he sealed a move to another Egyptian side Misr El-Makkasa.

A club statement read: “Nana Poku waives his financial dues and breaks his contract with Zamalek June 28.”

“The club's president, Morteza Mansour, held a session in his office with Nana Poku on Thursday after returning to end his association with the white castle in a friendly manner.”

“Nana Poku gave up all of his 22 million Egyptian pounds ($1,2 million) to leave the White Castle during the summer transfer, to break his contract and leave the team.”

“Nana Poku signed an acknowledgment that there was no money owed to him at the White Castle and that he had no right to complain to FIFA or the sports court.”

“And the player got his dispensation to move to any club inside or outside Egypt.”

Poku has also played for Saudi club Al Shabab and Israeli side Hapoel Kfar Saba.
