Ismaily have agreed to sell their goalkeeper Mosad Awad to Ahly for LE1.2 million ($171,500).
There were debates inside the Ismaily board meeting as some members announced they want to keep Awad until the end of the Under-20 World Cup.
After long negotiations, however, the club, under presidency of Mohamed Abou El-Soud, gave the offer the green light.
Ahly will face Cairo rivals Zamalek, Ismaily and either ENPPI or Smouha in a mini-league round with only home fixtures that will determine the champion.
