Egypt international Abdallah El-Said has completed his transfer to Saudi Arabian club Al Ahli Jeddah.
The attacking midfielder has been playing for Finnish side Kuopion Palloseura [KuPS] on a short loan stint loan from Al Ahly since April, 2018.
El-Said had been put up for transfer by the Egyptian Premier League champions in March, 2018 after the saga which saw him sign for the club’s eternal rivals Zamalek before going back to renew his contract with Al Ahly.
The Red Devils have now sold the 32-year-old, who made six appearances for KuPS during his loan spell with the team.
Al Ahli announced the signing of the attacker on their official Twitter account:
Welcome to Al-Ahli, Abdullah!

The experienced attacker was included in Egypt’s 27-man preliminary squad for the upcoming 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.
