Saudi Arabian side Al Ittihad have denied reports of them being interested in signing Al Ahly midfielder Hossam Ashour.
The Egyptian midfielder is currently in talks with Al Ahly regarding his future as his contract with the Red Devils runs until the end of the season.
The 34-year-old has already been advised by Al Ahly president Mahmoud El-Khatib to hang up his boots at the end of the season and become an analyst for the club’s TV channel.
As his time at Al Ahly nears an end, rumours have been circulating about a potential move for Ashour to Al Ittihad. However, the club’s spokesperson Ahmed Sadek Diab dismissed these rumours on Saturday.
“The world is going through a major crisis, and there are people who continue to spread rumours,” Diab said on Twitter.
“What is rumoured now about the club’s desire to sign Al Ahly’s Hossam Ashour is certainly not true and its not among our plans for the upcoming season.”
Ashour came all the way from the club’s youth sector towards the first team, spending around 16 years at the club to hold Al Ahly’s all-time appearances record by making over 500 games for the Red Devils.
During his time at the club, Ashour achieved 12 Egyptian Premier League titles, five CAF Champions League trophies and three Egypt Cup wins.
