Zamalek announced on Tuesday that Tunisian full back Hamdy Nagguez will be their third signing in the current transfer market after winger Omar Kamal and defender Mahmoud Shabana.
Nagguez, who became a free agent in August, will be joining the Whites for the second time on a three-season-contract coming from Tunisia’s Esperance.
The player was initially part of the Whites’ lineup from January 2018 until February 2019, participating in 64 games, scoring one goal and creating nine.
He was one of the main pillars of the team that won the African Confederation Cup and two Egypt Cup titles.
Local reports revealed that the 28-year-old defender will be paid 75 percent of his first season’s salary in advance, which the Whites agreed to, especially after Nagguez decided to drop the case he filed against them at the FIFA.
Nagguez has left Zamalek in February 2019 after unilaterally breaching his contract over unpaid dues, after that he won a verdict against Zamalek which stated that the team had to pay $1.3m to the player.
