Nigerian striker Junior Ajayi has expressed his great delight after guiding Champions Ahly to beat rivals Zamalek in the Egyptian league final match on Monday, insisting that he is fully committed to the Cairo giants at the time being.

Ajayi scored late in the second half to ensure Ahly's 2-0 win over the Whites, just like he did in the away game earlier in the season.

"It was a very difficult match. It was a tough one as we played against a big team. We missed a chance to end the match with a high score but I am very happy that we won today," Ajayi told ON Sport TV Channel after the match.

Ajayi, 21, has joined Ahly last summer from Tunisian side CS Sfaxien on a four-year contract. He scored 10 goals with Ahly in all competitions this season.

"I am happy to be here and I don't want to speak about any offers," the Nigerian replied when he was asked about his future with Ahly.

"I don't know what the future holds and I am very concentrated on my work with Ahly. I always look forward to deliver my best with the team," he added.

Ahly ended their campaign unbeaten finishing the season on 84 points, 10 ahead of second-placed Maqassa. Zamalek secured a CAF Confederation Cup -qualifying third place with 66 points.
