Enppi President Ayman El-Sherie announced Sunday that his team had received an official offer from Championship side Wigan for the services of the petroleum team’s goalkeeper Mahmoud Gad, but said it did not meet their minimum requirements.

El-Sherie acknowledged that they had received an official offer from Wigan, speaking to a television programme late on Saturday.

“We are careful of selling Gad but we have to respect the player and the club’s value and there is a minimum range of offer that we cannot exceed it,” the Enppi president said.

The club president said he did not recognise some parts of Wigan’s offers, saying they wanted to get the goalkeeper’s services “for free,” paying the transfer fees after he joined the English team.

“Wigan’s offer also includes rewards but it depended on the goalkeeper’s performance in the English championship,”

“The transfer fees offer is not acceptable for the player, the club and the Egyptian football,” the Enppi president concluded.

The 23-year-old Gad entered the spotlight this season after delivering fine displays with the petroleum club, helping them to place 10th on the Egyptian Premier League table with 35 points, 37 behind leaders Zamalek.
