Smouha president Farag Amer has announced the signing of Vita Club’s Congolese forward Emomo Eddy Ngoyi on a three-and-a-half-year contract.

Ngoyi was part of Vita Club’s last campaign in the CAF Confederation Cup, where they lost the final against Moroccan side Raja Casablanca.

The 25-year-old Congolese international, who can play as a winger and as well as a number-9 striker, has scored two times for the Democratic Republic of the Congo in eight appearances.

Ngoyi’s signing raises the number of foreign players at Smouha to five, meaning the club will have to let one of them leave as the clubs competing in the Egyptian first division are allowed a maximum of four foreigners in their squad.

Syrian and Palestinian players are not counted as foreigners according to the regulations of the Egyptian league.

Smouha’s coach Tarek Yahya will be the one naming the players to leave the team.

The Alexandria-based club Smouha is currently seventh in the league standings with 21 points, 14 behind leaders Zamalek.
