International midfielder Ahmed Fathy has signed a new three-year contract that will keep him tied to Ahly until 2014.

"Fathy inked a new three-year deal on Monday morning after a meeting with the football committee,” read a statement on Ahly’s official website. The online announcement did not give any further details concerning the contract’s amount.

The 26-year-old midfielder was scheduled to become a free agent in June and was reportedly looking for a European move.

According to the local media, a few Premier League teams approached the international player to lure him to their ranks, starting next January.

“The negotiations went smoothly but we agreed to consider any important European offers the player will have at any time,” Ahly’s football director Sayed Abdel-Hafiz said on the club’s website.

Fathy, who was a part of the Pharaohs successful treble in the African Cup of Nations (2006, 2008 and 2010), had a short spell at Sheffield United in 2007 before joining Ahly, but he is still eager to prove his worth among the world’s best in the Premier League.
