KickOff.com can confirm that Bidvest Wits forward Phakamani Mahlambi jetted out to Cairo last night ahead of a proposed move to Al Ahly.
The 19-year-old was spotted at OR Tambo International Airport on Wednesday evening, with his destination confirmed to have been Egypt.
It has widely been reported that the Red Devils have made an offer to Wits for the teenage winger, who recently returned from an unsuccessful trial in Portugal.
The details of the deal have yet to be confirmed however, as efforts to get hold of the Clever Boys CEO Jose Ferreira have proven fruitless.
Reports in Egypt suggest Al Ahly tabled a $1.3-million (R16,7-million) offer for the Amajita star, with the intention of signing him on a five-year deal.
Mahlambi is expected to undergo a medical on Thursday before completing his move to the record eight-time CAF Champions League champions.
KickOff.com got through to the player's agent Glyn Binkin, who couldn't provide a comment until "things are finalised".
