Arab Contractors defender Ali Fathi has completed his move to Zamalek on Tuesday after he penned a five-year contract with the Cairo giants.
The 24-year-old spent last season on loan at El-Entag El-Harby where he made a fine impact.
Fathi will be included in Zamalek's African Champions League squad as the White Knights sought a new left back after Adel Gomaa, who joined last summer, failed to establish himself.
Zamalek, who finished as runners up in the Egyptian Premier League last season, made a fine start to their Champions League group-stage campaign after claiming a 1-0 away win over Enyimba to top the group with three points.
Fathi is Zamalek's first summer signing and the club are actively targeting more players including Maqassa defensive midfielder Mahmoud Dunga and ENPPI fullbacks Osama Ibrahim and Mohamed Nassef.
