Sobhi leaves EPL for Al Ahly return

Al Ahly have confirmed the temporary return of prodigal son Ramadan Sobhi from Premier League side Huddersfield as their squad overhaul continues.

Sobhi, 21, a product of the Al Ahly academy, left the club in July 2016 for Stoke City in a reported £5 million deal but his spell in England has not gone to plan.

After suffering relegation with the Potters in his second season, the 28-time capped Egypt winger left for Huddersfield Town in a £5.7 m deal – where he’s been restricted to just 75 minutes of league action since.

Manager David Wagner’s tactical change 3-5-2 has seen the man dubbed as ‘the new Mohamed Abou-Trika’ fall out of favour with no room for playmakers or wingers in the system.

This subsequently alerted the Red Devils who have moved swiftly to secure the two-time Egyptian Premier League winner on a six-month loan deal.

Sobhi scored 17 goals and registered 15 assists in 74 games for the eight-time African champions before embarking on his move to England.
