Zamalek have finalised a one-season loan deal for Wadi Degla striker Stanley Ohawuchi, the club confirmed early on Tuesday.

"Officially, Zamalek contracted Nigerian striker Stanley Ohawuchi for one season in loan terms from Wadi Degla club," reads a statement on Zamalek's official Facebook page that has around 5.4 million fans.

Their rivals Ahly announced last week that they were in ongoing negotiations with the same player.

The deal finances haven't been officially revealed yet but Zamalek's chairman has previously said the deal had reached LE 5 million.

Ahly and Zamalek are both in need of a boost to their frontlines during the current summer transfer window. The Reds sold key players Ramadan Sobhi and Malick Evouna, while the Whites' striker Basem Morsi has been the club's only reliable attacker in recent matches.

The 26-year old Stanley has attracted the attention of the Cairo giants after being one of the most prominent strikers in Egypt for a couple of years since joining from the Maltese league in 2014, scoring 11 goals with Wadi Degla in the Egyptian Premiere league last season.

Zamalek lost the league title to rivals Ahly, ending the tournament second, while Wadi Degla came in the fifth place.

In Egypt Cup, Zamalek will play Ismaily on Wednesday, one day before Ahly take on ENPPI.
