Ahly's keeper Sherif Ekramy has signed a two-year contract extension with the club, the Cairo giants announced on Monday.

The 34-year-old, who was Ahly's first keeper during the past five years, lost his post between the sticks following his shaky performance with the club as Ahly's coach Hossam El-Badry opted last summer for signing Mohamed El-Shennawi.

The veteran keeper made only four league appearance with the Red Devils this season so far.

Under his new contract Ekramy will be linked with the club until the summer of 2020.

Ekramy was a part of Egypt's team that reached the final of 2017 Nations Cup and ended a 28-year World Cup drought with Zamalek keeper Ahmed El-Shennawy and veteran Essam El-Hadary. 

Last week Ahly renewed the contracts of Walid Soliman, Hossam Ashour, Mohamed Hany and Bassem Aly.
