Ecuador’s Jhon Cifuente joins Pyramids FC

Egypt’s rising football powerhouse Pyramids FC have signed Ecuador’s international striker Jhon Cifuente, the league’s top spending club announced on Thursday.

The financial details of the transfer and the length of the contract have not been disclosed yet.

The 26-year-old prolific scorer will join the team in a transfer from the Ecuadorian side Universidad Catolica, replacing the club’s outgoing Brazilian striker Carlos Eduardo who left Pyramids FC on Thursday to join Brazilian giants Palmeiras.

Cifuente scored 37 goals in 42 games in the Ecuadorian league this season, and twice in four appearances with his national team.

He will start his mission with Pyramids FC on the first day of the new year when the winter transfer window begins.

Cifuente becomes the Pyramids’ fourth winter signing after Tunisia’s Etoile du Sahel Egyptian striker Amr Marei, Egypt’s Maqassa Burkinabe’s winger Eric Traore, Palestinian forward Hamed Hemdan.

He will be the fifth foreign-based player in Pyramids squad, thus forcing the club to offload one of their current five foreign players, per the Egyptian Football Association (EFA) regulations.

Pyramids FC curently have on the roster Brazilian duo Keno and Rodriguinho Marinho, Nigerian midfielder Azubuike Okechukwu and the Burkinabe Traore.
