Brett Amidu on verge of joining Egyptian giants

Chicken Inn forward Brett Amidu is closing in on a transfer to Zamalek.

The parties involved in the deal have reached an agreement and the Gamecocks’ secretary Tavengwa Hara has confirmed this development to NewsDay.

“We have agreed terms with Zamalek for Amidu and personal terms with the player have also been agreed,” Hara told the publication.

“We are just waiting to hear from Zamalek on the bookings and travel arrangements to Egypt. I am supposed to be travelling with the player for the official signing ceremony.

“Visas for both of us have been sorted after Zamalek wrote to the Egyptian embassy here to facilitate the travelling documents. Once we get confirmation from that side, then we are leaving for Egypt.”

If Amidu complete the move, he becomes the second Zimbabwean to play in the Egyptian league in recent times after his brother Abbas, who played for Entag El-Harby two seasons ago.

The Egyptian giants have also been linked with Khama Billiat who was with the Warriors at the 2019 Afcon.

Zamalek’s domestic rivals Al Ahly are also reportedly trying to get the Kaizer Chiefs star.
