Egypt defender Ahmed Hegazy has officially joined Serie B side AC Perugia on loan until the end of the ongoing season from Serie A side Fiorentina, the club announced on Monday.

Despite recovering from niggling knee injuries that sidelined him for a lengthy spell, Hegazy has not featured for the Italian club Fiorentina in the Serie A this season.

The Italy team Fiorentina dropped the 23-year-old from their squad for the Europa League last September which has cast doubt over Hegazy's future with the Serie A side, for whom he has made rare appearances since joining from Egypt's Ismaily in the summer of 2012.

Hegazy's previous two seasons have been disrupted by injuries as he ruptured a knee ligament in December 2012 before suffering a similar injury almost a year later while on international duty with Egypt national team.

AC Perugia are 13 in the Italy Serie B teams' table with 30 points.
