Ismaily midfielder Mahmoud Wahid has begun a trial period with Bundesliga outfit VFL Wolfsburg in advance of a likely summer move.

"I left Ismaily to start my career in Europe away from the Egyptian league. I will sign a contract with the German club soon," Wahid told MENA Thursday.

Wahid was raised in Ismaily and was promoted to the club's senior squad at the beginning of the season – at the age of 18 – under former coach Hossam Hassan.

The Egypt U-20 player has not signed a formal contract with Ismaily in order to join Wolfsburg as a free agent.

With 25 points between them and leaders BV Borussia Dortmund, Wolfsburg is currently 13th of the German top flight league with 27 points, same as Mainz – which also boasts an Egyptian, striker Mohamed Zidan, among its players.
