Zamalek's stand-in goalkeeper Ahmed El-Shennawy said on Wednesday he will leave the club at the end of this season, adding that he is eyeing a move overseas.

The 22-year-old joined Zamalek last summer on a season-long loan after his boyhood club Masry were suspended in the wake of the 2012 February Port Said disaster. However, he could only make a few appearances, often playing second-fiddle to skipper Abdel-Wahed El-Sayed.

"I'm 180% out of Zamalek," El-Shennawy said in a television interview.

"I have talked with Masry's chairman to inform him that I refuse to renew my loan with Zamalek. I will return to Masry after the end of this season and my future will depend on the situation of the Country.

"I want to play abroad, whatever the name of the club. I am not looking for a big club; the most important thing is to play regularly," he added.
