23-year-old Egyptian winger Ramadan Sohbi has revealed that transfer talks have gone cold as a result of the Coronavirus pandemic, despite reports linking him with a move to Turkish giants Besiktas.
Sobhi who is on loan at Egyptian giants Al Ahly from Huddersfield Town is a completely transformed player attracting interest again for his services in Europe.
He bagged five goals and an assist for Al Ahly in nine appearances across all competitions, since joining them, though his loan spell has been marred by injury.
“There have been no official negotiations with any club,” Sobhi said to ON Time Sports.
“Everything has been put on hold due to the Coronavirus outbreak. If there were any unofficial talks, then it’s the responsibility of my agent, Nader Shawky.”
The Egypt U-23 international also dismissed rumours linking him with a move to Zamalek or Pyramids.
“There has been no form of contact between myself and Pyramids. The same applies for Zamalek as well.”
Sobhi was also full of praise for Al Ahly’s coach Rene Weiler, crediting him for their excellent form, as the Red Devils have remained undefeated in the Egyptian top flight this season.
“Things are different this season under Rene Weiler, the atmosphere at the club is great, and the new signings have certainly helped us this season,” the former Stoke City winger added.
Sobhi came through the ranks of Al Ahly and won two league titles, two Egyptian Super Cups and the CAF Confederations Cup with them before joining Stoke City in 2016.
The 2019 CAF U-23 AFCON Best Player is in his second spell with Al Ahly and has already claimed another league title and another Egyptian Super Cup with them.
Al Ahly currently top the Egyptian Premier League table with 49 points after 17 games, with a comfortable 18 points cushion over eternal rivals Zamalek.
Egyptian clubs are currently divided over the outcome of the current season which has been suspended since March as a result of the Coronavirus outbreak.
