Hosni Abd-Rabou

Egypt and Ismaily midfielder Hosni Abd-Rabou has officially signed a one-year contract with Saudi giants Al-Nasr, Saudi newspaper Al-Eqtisadiah announced on Friday.

"Egypt's Abd-Rabou has officially joined Al-Nasr for one year on loan against $3 million," the Saudi newspaper revealed.

"Abd-Rabou put pen to paper and sent his signature via fax on Friday before traveling to Bangi with Egypt national team to face Central Africa in the second leg of the 2013 African Cup of Nations qualifiers."

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.

The 28-year-old midfielder 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 performed well in the Saudi Professionals League last season as he managed to score four goals in 12 appearances with the Saudi champions during his short spell.
