Amir Tawfik, the acting executive director of Ahly's football company, has resolved all financial and managerial issues with the players after agreeing with the club's chairman, Mahmoud El-Khatib, on the contract details, according to a statement on the club's official website. 

The 31-year-old El-Shahat, who joined the Red Devils in January 2019 from UAE side Al Ain, has made a big impact with the Red Devils in 172 appearances, scoring 39 goals and providing 42 assists.

In four years with Ahly, El-Shahat helped the club win 11 titles with Ahly, including two Egyptian Premier League titles, two Egypt Cup trophies, two Egyptian Super Cup trophies, two African Super Cups and three CAF Champions League titles.
