Egypt midfielder Hosni Abd-Rabou will rejoin Saudi club Al-Nasr Tuesday after taking part in this year's Hajj, the Islamic pilgrimage to Mecca.

"Abd-Rabou was due to take part in Monday's training, but wasn't available as he remained with his parents in Mecca where they were finishing Hajj," Saudi daily Al-Eqtisadiah reported Tuesday.

"The player will appear in Tuesday's training session, but it's not sure whether he will be fit to play from the start against Al-Shoalah on Friday in the Saudi League," the newspaper added.

Abd-Rabou returned to action earlier this month after being sidelined for three weeks due to a muscle injury he sustained during the 2-1 victory over Al-Tawon on the 4th match-day of the domestic League.

The Pharaohs' midfielder joined Al-Nasr from Egyptian Premier League side Ismaily on a season-long loan during the summer transfer window.

Last season, Abd-Rabou played in the Saudi Professionals League for Ittihad Jeddah, also on loan, scoring four goals in 12 appearances. The Saudi champions, however, failed to secure his services on a permanent basis.
