Zamalek striker Amr Zaki has reached an agreement with Turkish side Elazığspo to move during the summer transfer window.

Al-Ahram sports revealed that Zamalek deputy president Sabry Serag met Tuesday with officials from the Turkish club and agreed on a permanent move for the 28-year-old forward. Zaki will recieve 250,000 euro for a three-year deal.

Zaki, who has recently been at loggerheads with the Cairo-based club over the payment of his salary, was earlier linked to a move to Gaziantepspor before Elazığspo entered into the frame.

The former ENPPI player, Zaki, moved to Zamalek in 2006. He was loaned to English Premier League side Wigan Athletic in 2008-2009 and scored 11 goals in 33 matches. He also had a short spell in Hull City with which he has six caps.
