Al Ahly director of football Sayed AbdelHafiz said that the club is close to renewing the contract of impressive Nigeria international Junior Ajayi.Ajayi has been crucial for the Egyptian giants scoring important goals in a first team role.
24 year old Ajayi joined Al Ahly from Tunisian side CS Sfaxien in 2016 and has been a crucial first team player ever since. He played 80 games across all competitions scoring 24 goals and provided 19 games and has won two Egyptian Premier League titles,Egyptian Cup and the Egyptian Super Cup.
“Ajayi is one the verge of signing a new contract, only the final touches are missing,” AbdelHafiz said.
“It will be done in a couple of days.
“What slowed the proceeds is that we didn’t have any rest since returning from Tanzania.
“We then had a very important game against Entag El-Harby in the league, we will end everything soon.”
Al Ahly are currently second on the Egyptian League table with 42 points. They will face El Dakhleya in their next game on February 20.
