Zamalek agreed on Monday to loan striker Mohamed Ibrahim to La Liga side Malaga for six-months starting in January.
"A delegation from the Spanish side will be in Cairo within the coming days to finalise the deal," the Egyptian club's board member Ayman Yunis told their official website.
The 21-year-old rose to prominence with a series of impressive displays last season, playing a key role in helping Zamalek make their best-ever Egyptian Premier League start before the competition was cancelled due to the country’s political turmoil. He also inspired them to win their first championship since 2008, clinching the Egypt Cup this month.
Ibrahim, who is lauded for his trickery, has become a regular member of Egypt's senior squad under American coach Bob Bradley.
Malaga are currently 14th in the league table with 13 points from 13 games, 24 behind leaders Barcelona. They ended last season in sixth place with 57 points, 43 behind winners Barcelona.
