Zamalek have agreed to loan out forward Mahmoud Kahraba to Saudi side Ittihad Jeddah for one year starting next season.

Kahraba, 22, is reportedly keen to move to the Gulf side, who sent a delegation to Cairo to negotiate a possible loan move for the Egyptian with Zamalek chairman Mortada Mansour.

Zamalek's official website initially announced that an agreement had not been reached between club officials their Saudi counterparts, but later revealed that both sides were able to agree upon a move that would send the ex-Luzern man to Ittihad on a one year loan.

Two-time Asian champions Ittihad will pay Zamalek an estimated fee of $1.2million in return for the services of Kahraba, who has come under immense criticism of late for his decision-making in the final third.

Kahraba, who can operate as a winger as well as a center-forward thanks to his blistering speed, netted 11 league goals to help Zamalek finish as runners-up to champions and bitter rivals Ahly this season.
