Ahly have signed youngster Hossam Ghaly on a five-year contract from lower division side Tanta, the Cairo giants said.

"Ahly coach Hossam El-Badry agreed to sign Tanta midfielder Hossam Ghaly on a five-year deal," read a statement on the club's official website.

"The Ahly manager is considering registering the player in the team's African Champions League squad.”

The 20-year-old helped Egypt’s youth national team book a place at the 2013 African Cup of Nations.

Ahly’s squad already boasts another Hossam Ghaly, one of the team’s experienced and key players who is nursing a serious knee injury he sustained during the Club World Cup campaign last month.

The Red Devils are currently preparing for the new Egyptian Premier League season, which will start on 2 February after months of uncertainty over whether it would go ahead, given the country’s ongoing political turmoil.
