Ahly star confirms Sundowns offer


Al Ahly club-record signing Hussein El Shahat has confirmed he received an offer to join Mamelodi Sundowns.

El Shahat joined the Red Devils from United Arab Emirates outfit Al Ain in January 2019 in a deal worth a reported R70-million and has since developed into an integral part of their attack.

With his impressive form continuing upon his return to Egypt, the 28-year-old has been linked with moves away from the reigning African champions but he confirmed he has no desire to leave.

"I am continuing with Al-Ahly Club, but if the club decides to dispense with me, I will leave," he told MBC Egypt News before addressing talk of Sundowns and Zamalek.

"I want to stay at Ahly. Zamalek, of course, is a big club and has all the respect. I have an offer from Sundowns, as well as offers from Saudi Arabia and the UAE, but I will not reveal the names [of those clubs]."

With the Cairo Derby scheduled for Monday evening before the CAF Champions League home and away quarter-final ties against Masandawana ahead, El Shahat says he wants to move on from speculation around his future.

"I am focused on my work, and I was relieved of pressure from my heart, and I have a lot to offer to the club in the coming period," the Egypt international concluded.

El Shahat has scored 19 goals and registered 15 assists in 84 appearances since his lucrative $5-million transfer from the UAE Pro giants.
