Ahmed Kaaki, vice president of Saudi Jeddah Club, confirmed the success of his team in maintaining the presence of Egyptian Ahmed Hegazy, the team’s defender, for a period of two years after the end of his current loan period.
In statements on the Abu Dhabi Sports Channel, Kaaki indicated that Hijazi is one of the basic and influential elements in his team, which prompted him to activate the compulsory purchase clause.
The vice president of the federation said: “Hijazi is an important and influential player in the team, and that has emerged since he reached us. We have a compulsory purchase clause in the contract and not the priority, and we decided to activate it.”
He concluded, “I assure the fans of Al-Ittihad, that Hejazi will stay with us for two more years after the end of his current loan period.”
It is worth noting that Hijazi is currently playing for Al Ittihad in Jeddah, on loan from West Bromwich Albion, since the beginning of the current season in Saudi Arabia.
