Egyptian side Ismaily signed Tunisian league top scorer Lassaad Jaziri on a three-year contract, the club announced on Saturday.

Jaziri joins Ismaily from Tunisian outfit US Ben Guerdane. The 28-year-old winger scored 10 goals in the Tunisian league last season to finish on top of the scorers' chart.

Ismaily sought to strengthen their frontline following the departure of Diego Calderon, their prolific Colombian striker who netted 14 goals in the Egyptian Premier League last season.

Calderon joined Saudi Arabia's Al Faisaly last month for an undisclosed fee.

Jaziri is Ismaily's first summer acquisition as they gear up for the new season, which will see them take part in the lucrative African Champions League for the first time in eight years.

The Dervishes finished runners-up to champions Ahly in the Egyptian league last season.
