Ahly officially informed forward Mohamed 'Gedo' Nagy and defender Sherif Abdel-Fadil on Monday that they will not be in the team's squad next season, as the Reds intend to loan them out.
The duo renewed their contracts with Ahly in July but the Cairo giants opted to remove them from the squad to open the door for the registration of international defenders Rami Rabie and Ahmed Hegazy, who joined the club this summer.
Ahly signed Rami Rabie from Sporting Lisbon and Ahmed Hegazy from Serie A side Fiorentina in an attempt to strengthen their defence for next season.
Gedo joined Ahly from Ittihad of Alexandria in the summer of 2010 after stunning displays in the same year at the Africa Cup of Nations, where he was the tournament's top scorer with five goals, helping the Pharaohs win their seventh African title.
Despite having a good start with the Red Devils, the 31-year-old has been sidelined due to a longstanding injury, having undergone knee surgery last season.
Defender Abdel-Fadil is set to seal a deal with Smouha in the immediate future.
The 32-year-old joined Ahly in 2011 but failed to fulfill his anticipated impact with the club as he suffered a string of injuries that prevented him from playing regular football.
