Egyptian striker Amr Zaki officially joined Lebanese side Al-Ahed on Friday on a one-year contract, the player announced via his Facebook page.

The former Wigan and Hull City striker was a free agent since February when he terminated his contract with Moroccan side Raja de Casablanca.

He also had short spells at Turkish side Elazigspor and Al-Salmiya of Kuwait, where he failed to make an impact.

The former Zamalek marksman has struggled for form during the past two years due to constant injuries.

Al-Ahed ended the Lebanese league last season in fourth place with 37 points, seven behind winners Al-Nejmeh.

The new season of the Lebanese league is due to start 26 September.
