Saudi side Ittihad Jeddah joined the race with Al-Nasr to keep Egypt and Ismaily key player Hosni Abd-Rabou in Saudi Arabia for another stint.

Abd-Rabou is currently engaged with Egyptian club Ismaily who is most likely to green-light his move as the Suez Canal team faces a financial crisis due to the Egyptian competitions' freeze since the Port Said stadium tragedy that left 72 fans dead in February 2012.

The 28-year-old Pharaohs star has delivered some impressive displays in Saudi football. After a successive spell in Ittihad Jeddah last season, he joined Al-Nasr in summer on a one-season-long loan deal, scoring twice to inspire them to rank fourth in the league table with 28 points after 15 matches.
