Mostafa Fathi joins Al-Taawoun on a 1year loan deal
Saudi outfit Al-Taawoun have officially signed skillful Zamalek winger Mostafa Fathi on loan for one season with a reported fee of $1.4 million.
The two clubs agreed on an option to make the deal permanent at a later date for $3.6 million.
“For sure, we have signed one of the important Egyptian talents in recent years,” Al-Taawoun’s president Mohamed El-Kasem was quoted as saying by the club’s media center after signing the contract late Tuesday.
The 22-year-old Fathi is following in the footsteps of Egypt’s veteran goalkeeper Essam El-Hadary who has just joined Al-Taawoun on a one-season deal from Egypt’s Wadi Degla.
Fathi will be the fourth Egyptian player in the Saudi league besides El-Hadary, Ahly’s defender Mohamed Abdel-Shafy and Ittihad’s winger Mahmoud Kahraba.
