Huddersfield's Egyptian winger Ramadan Sobhi has denied reports linking him with a move to Egyptian giants Ahly on loan when the winter transfer window reopens in January, instead confirming he will stay in the English Premier League.

After just one appearance with Huddersfield since joining the team this summer, reports in the Egyptian media linked the winger with a return to his old team, Ahly, especially after the team lost the CAF Champions League title to Tunisian side Esperance.

"No one in the team [Ahly] has spoken to me about a potential return. I am one of the team's sons and I am ready any time," Sobhi told an Egyptian television sports programme.

"But I am committed to a contract with Huddersfield and I want to achieve something with them,” he added.

"Huddersfield want to keep me at the team and I don't think that they intend to loan me.”

“They bought my contract with a big amount of money a few months ago, so I don't think there is any intention to loan me," he said.

Sobhi has been out of action since picking up a knee injury in August. His only Premier League appearance following his summer arrival at Huddersfield from relegated Stoke City came during their 6-1 loss to Manchester City in the second match of the season.

The 21-year-old made 28 appearances with Stoke last season, scoring four goals and providing a solitary assist. He joined Huddersfield in the close season on a three-year deal for £5.7 million.
