Ahly's midfielder Ahmed Fathi revealed on Monday that he has not signed a contract with Saudi side Ittihad Jeddah.

The international midfielder has been heavily tipped to join the Saudi giants as his contract with Ahly expires at the end of this season and he has so far refused to sign a new contract with the Cairo side.

Ittihad Jeddah's president Mansour Al-Balawi announced in a news conference on Sunday that Fathi has become the club's first foreign-based player for the next season – but the international midfielder has denied the rumour.

The 29-year-old made it clear that no decision has been made yet regarding his future.

"I didn't sign for Ittihad Jeddah," Fathi told the club's official website on Monday.

"My contract with Ahy will expire at the end of this season and I will decide my future then."
