Egypt and Ismaily midfielder Hosni Abd-Rabou has agreed to join Saudi club Al-Nasr in the coming season, Saudi newspaper Al-Eqtisadiah revealed on Saturday.

Ismaily, who have set a $1 million price tag for Abd-Rabou, have recently registered the experienced player in next season's squad after Ittihad Jeddah failed to secure his services on a permanent basis, having signed him on loan last February.

"Abd-Rabou has accepted the offer he received to join Al-Nasr. The club management is currently preparing to meet Ismaily's financial demands to complete the deal," Al Eqtisadiah said.

The 28-year-old player joined Ittihad Jeddah after domestic football activity was suspended following February's Port Said disaster, which left dozens of fans dead and hundreds injured.

The former Strasbourg player managed to score four goals in 12 appearances with the Saudi champions during his short spell.
