Shocking news has come out of Egypt as Pyramids have bought Ramadan Sobhi from English Championship side Huddersfield Town.
Sobhi began his career at Ahly before moving to Premier League side Stoke City. He struggled as Stoke were relegated but was signed by then Premier League side Huddersfield Town in 2018.
He was loaned out to Al Ahly six months later. Sobhi has spent almost two years with the Cairo giants – and was expected to return to leave Ahly and return to Huddersfield upon the expiration of his loan.
Huddersfield, however, did not want Sobhi – and were reportedly fielding offers from clubs in Turkey, Spain, Egypt and Italy for the 23-year-old winger.
Al Ahly tried to sign him permanently and came to an agreement with the English side, before Ramadan asked to move to Pyramids.
Pyramids signed him for $5m USD.
Sobhi had scored five goals and provided one assist in nine appearances for Al Ahly this season. He was sidelined by a thigh injury he sustained in December.
He captained Egypt to the U23 AFCON title and is expected to lead them again at the Olympics.
According to FilGoal, Pyramids have offered a 3 year contract worth 80m Egyptian Pounds.
