The Egyptian Premier League giants Zamalek have refused to sell winger Mahmoud Kahraba.
The Pharaohs international is set to stay at Zamalek following a two-year loan at Saudi side Ittihad Jeddah.
Kahraba joined Ittihad Jeddah on a one-year loan in 2016, but after some exceptional performances, which saw him score 16 goals in 20 league games, the club decided to extend his loan spell for a further year.
However, he failed to recapture his old form in his second spell, managing just six goals in 29 appearances, which made the Saudi club decide against offering him a permanent deal.
According to KingFut, the 24-year-old announced his intentions to move to a European club after the 2018 FIFA World Cup, but the White Knights president Mortada Mansour says they won’t sell him.
“Mahmoud Kahraba has been registered in Zamalek’s list for the upcoming season. He is staying at the club,” Mortada said.
“We have no intentions of selling or loaning out Kahraba again.”
Kahraba joined Zamalek in 2015 from ENPPI and made 39 appearances and scored14 goals as well as helping them win two consecutive Egypt Cup titles.
On the other hand, he has 25 caps for Egypt and scored three international goals and was part of the 2018 World Cup squad in Russia.
