Zamalek landed Smouha midfielder Ibrahim Abdel-Khaleq on a three-year contract Wednesday, the latest acquisition in the Cairo giants' summer buying spree.
"Zamalek board continued to complete outstanding deals to boost the league champions' team ahead of the new season by signing Smouha's midfield star," said Zamalek on their website.
The financial details of the deal remain undisclosed.
Zamalek have already secured the services of eight other new players in the summer transfer window: defender Sherif Alaa (Arab Contractors); left-back Adel Gomaa (Masry); midfielders Ahmed Hamoudi (Basel), Mahmoud ‘Kahraba’ Abdel-Moneim (ENPPI) and Tersana youngster Mohamed Gamal (Tersana); playmaker Mohamed Ibrahim (Maritimo); strikers Ahmed Mekki (Haras El-Hodoud) and Mohamed Salem (Arab Contractors).
The Whites also announced they have released nine players, including Ahmed Eid, Abdoulaye Cisse, Mohamed Abdel-Megid, Youssef Ibrahim 'Obama', Mohamed Shaaban and Saleh Mousa.
Zamalek ended an 11-year league drought after clinching their 12th domestic title a week ago, beating off competition from arch-rivals and title holders Ahly who were eyeing their ninth successive title and 38th overall.
