Zamalek's on-loan Nigerian forward Stanley Ohawuchi has finalized an agreement to join Al-Qadisiyah next season, the Saudi club announced on Wednesday.

Al-Qadisiyah said on their official Twitter account that they have reached an agreement with Egyptian club Wadi Degla to land the pacey deep-lying forward, who can also operate as a winger.

Zamalek had been hoping to keep hold of Stanley following his loan move to the Cairo club last summer but they failed to exercise an option to sign him on a permanent basis.

The club said they could not afford to pay $1.5 million that Wadi Degla seek to offload Stanley.

His departure will leave Zamalek short of attacking options in the African Champions League, should they make it to the quarter finals when they host Libya's Ahli Tripoli in their final Group B clash on Sunday.

The White Knights had also lost another skilful winger in Mostafa Fathi, who joined Saudi Arabia's Al-Taawoun earlier in the day on a season-long loan.

Stanley has made a fine impact in his only season with Zamalek, scoring nine goals in all competitions: six in the Egyptian Premier League and three in the Champions League.
