Tunisia's Etoile Sportive du Sahel have announced that they have reached an agreement with Egypt's Ahly regarding their AWOL striker Souleymane Coulibaly, without revealing any details.

"We have reached an initial agreement with Ahly regarding Souleymane Coulibaly, and we are waiting to continue the legal procedures," read a statement on the club's official Facebook page on Tuesday.

In June 2017, Ahly lodged a complaint with FIFA against Coulibaly due to his unauthorised absence, which ended with fining the player $1.436 million.

The Tunisian giants are facing an obstacle in signing the Ivorian striker, as Ahly are still owed $450,000 from Coulibaly.

The 24-year-old Coulibaly had missed Ahly's training session in May 2017, leaving only a message saying he had flown to London for private reasons. He later said he sought to terminate his contract with Ahly, a request that was rejected by the Cairo giants.

Coulibaly, who joined Ahly in the 2016 winter transfer market on a three-and-a-half year deal, scored six league goals in 12 matches in all competitions.
