Egyptian Club Ismaily have decided Sunday to take their time before agreeing on extending their midfielder Hosni Abd-Rabou's loan to Saudi Arabia giants Ittihad Jeddah.
The Ismailia-based club have reversed their official agreement they announced last week to extend the 27-year-old player stay in the Saudi side for of $1 million.
There are widespread, unconfirmed reports that the 2008 Africa Cup of Nations' most valuable player is wanted by many UAE’s sides that are willing to raise the bid.
Abd-Rabou joined the Saudi League in February. Football activity in Egypt has been suspended since February's Port Said stadium disaster, which left dozens of fans dead and hundreds injured.
The former Strasbourg player managed to score four goals in 12 appearances with the Saudi champions during his short spell.
