Tunisia international Fakhreddine Ben Youssef has been snapped up by Egyptian club Ismaily SC on a free transfer.
The towering centre forward has been a free agent since he left Saudi Arabian side Al-Ettifaq this month.
Ismaily confirmed the arrival of the former Esperance de Tunis player on the club’s official website:
“Tunisian player Fakhr El Din Bin Youssef was pleased with himself after running around the stadium, during Ismaili training today, as part of the preparations to face the Alexandrian Federation in the Mohamed VI Cup of Champions Clubs.”
“The player will definitely participate in group exercises starting tomorrow, Thursday, as the technical staff preferred to give the player a light training session today.”
“As the player arrived at dawn today from Tunisia, then underwent a medical examination this morning and immediately came to sign contracts,” a club statement read.
Ben Youssef is an experienced player having turned out for French side Metz and Tunisian giants CS Sfaxien.
He was part of the Tunisia squad at the 2018 FIFA World Cup finals in Russia.
