DONE DEAL: Ali Gabr joins West Brom on loan from Zamalek

West Bromwich Albion have signed Zamalek defender Ali Gabr on loan until the end of the season.

West Brom tabled €500,000 to sign the Egyptian international, according to the club’s chairman Mortada Mansour.

The 29-year-old has been one of Zamalek’s key players since joining from Alexandria-based club Ittihad in the summer of 2014, helping them win a rare domestic double in 2015 and the Egypt Cup title in 2016.

He was also a regular member of the Egypt side that reached the African Nations Cup final and qualified for the World Cup after a 28-year absence last year. Gabr has made 18 international appearances since making his debut with Egypt in 2014.

Hegazi has been a regular member of West Brom’s starting line-up since joining last summer from Zamalek’s Cairo rivals Ahly on a season-long loan deal.

Last month, The Baggies exercised an option to tie him down to a five-year contract ending in 2022.
