Egypt striker Amr Zaki has reached an agreement to join Moroccan side Raja Casablanca.

ZAki will arrive in Morocco on Thursday to put pen to paper on a one year contract, Moroccan newspaper Al-Montakhab reported on Monday.

The Moroccan newspaper also said that Zaki, who is currently free agent after terminating his contract with Kuwaiti club Al-Salmiya last December amicably, will sign a one-year contract with Raja for $300,000.

The 30-year-old striker joined Kuwaiti club Al-Salmiya in June but decided to part company with the club after scoring only twice in a limited number of appearances.

The former Wigan and Hull City forward made his debut for Egypt in 2004, helping them win the African Nations Cup in 2006 and 2008.

He was released by Elazigspor last January after failing to make an impact during his six-month spell in the Turkish league.
