Zamalek have signed Egypt international left-back Ahmed Samir Farag, the Cairo club's official website said.
Board member Ayman Younes announced that Farag, who has been a free agent since rescinding his contract with Lierse by mutual consent in the winter break, has joined the club on a two-and-a-half year deal.
Zamalek reportedly faced fierce competition from rivals Ismaily to sign the 27-year-old, who eventually opted to join the Cairo giants.
