Exclusive: Huddersfield accept bid for senior forward as deal all but done
Huddersfield Town have agreed a deal to sell attacker Ramadan Sobhi to Pyramids FC, Football Insider understands.
The 23-year-old has spent the last season and a half out on loan at Egyptian Premier League table-toppers Al Ahly after he joined the Terriers from Stoke City back in 2018.
A source at the John Smith’s Stadium has told Football Insider that Huddersfield have now accepted a bid from second-placed Pyramids and that a deal is all but done for the winger to return to his homeland on a permanent basis.
The winger, who can play on either flank, arrived in England back in 2016 to join Stoke City from Al Ahly.
He played 46 times in a two-year spell with the Potters before he moved to Huddersfield following Stoke’s relegation to the Championship.
However, he featured just four times for the Terriers during the first half of the 2018/19 Premier League campaign before he returned to his old side in Egypt on loan.

He quickly re-established himself as a mainstay at Al Ahly and after 27 appearances he extended his stay for another year last summer.
He played nine times and scored five goals to help fire the Egyptian giants to the top of the table this season before his temporary spell came to an end last week.
Now he is set to join Pyramids FC, who sit 18 points behind his old side, on a permanent basis.
New Huddersfield manager Carlos Corberan has already seen the likes of Danny Simpson, Herbert Bockhorn, Jon Goren-Stankovic and Elais Kachunga leave the John Smith’s Stadium at the end of their contracts this summer.
The Terriers are also yet to make their first signing of the transfer window.
