Zamalek midfielder Omar Gaber has denied reaching an agreement to join Moroccan side Wydad Casablanca starting from next season.

"Gaber is not thinking of leaving the Whites at this time as he is fully concentrated on his current commitments at both the domestic and continental level," Zamalek's official website declared in a statement late on Tuesday.

"The player would only leave us to play in Europe,” added the statement. “And he has just signed a three-year contract extension with the club."

Gaber, a product of Zamalek's youth academy, is considered one of the club's icons despite being only 23.

Zamalek, who are bidding for their first league title since 2004, have collected 48 points from 21 games, five ahead of second-placed ENPPI and a nine point buffer between title holders Ahly.

Zamalek is also competing in the African Confederation Cup this season.

Wydad is currently leading the Moroccan league table with 45 points after 23 rounds.
