Ramadan Sobhi's agent has revealed that Al Ahly is the Egypt international's preferred destination if Huddersfield Town decide to send him out on-loan in the January transfer window.

The 21-year-old has found playing time hard to come by since his move from Stoke City ahead of the 2018-19 season, and has clocked a mere 33 minutes in the English Premier League for the Terriers.

Sobhi has been heavily linked with a return to the 'Red Devils' next month with the Egyptian club desperate to bolster their ranks, following a disappointing start to the season which was capped with defeat to Esperance de Tunis in the Caf Champions League final.

“Ramadan is tied to a contract with Huddersfield and their coach [David Wagner] doesn’t want to sell or loan him this season,” Sobhi’s agent Nader Shawky told ONSport FM.

“The situation is not controlled by Ahly, the player or his agent. I will travel to England on December 10 to know the latest updates on Ramadan’s position at the club.

Shawky continued: "There are things that can not be talked about and I do not want to anticipate events. We are currently considering how many matches he will play until January.

“Al Ahly is Ramadan Sobhi’s first choice if Huddersfield decided to loan him, but it’s up to the English club because they have the player’s contract."

Sobhi, who struggled with a knee injury at the start of the season, was an unused substitute in Huddersfiled's 2-1 defeat to Brighton & Hove Albion this past weekend.
