Arab Contractors and Zamalek to battle for Simbo
Egyptian giants Arab Contractors and Zamalek are ready to test Al- Hilal and Sierra Leone Defender David Simbo by bidding for the versatile Defender in the January transfer window.
Both clubs has made formal approaches to the Sudanese during the summer but pulled out of deals after Al –Hilal made it open that he is not for sale.
Al-Hilal Chairman Alhaj Atta Annann has warned it would take an “astronomical” fee for clubs to take their star Defender in January,
Alhaly Benghazi have also been linked with the Player, but Ahamed Shahata Contractors will be able to offer the 25-year-old a regular starting spot as they look to bolster their defense as they lies on 16 position in the ongoing Egyptian league.
Arab Contractors have struggled badly in the league as they have conceded more goals so far in the league after losing most of their defender to injuries Sayed Hassan arrived from Petrojet FC in a club record fee is still yet to show his worth.
Arab Contractors chief Scout Ahmed Abdulrhman Kahlil is a long-term admirer of the Sierra Leonean since they met in Egypt in the CAF Champions league I have watch him in Egypt and also played against Cameroon and ivory coast in the AFCON qualifiers that why I told the board to get him by all cost and they are ready to splash the cash on his parent club for his signature in January, he told FootballSierraLeone.net reporter Prince Scott in a chat on facebook. They have also struggled in front of goal also,. They are the second-lowest scorers in the league so far but our main focus is to strengthen the defense he said
Egyptian Construction Company El Mokawloon which is the team leading sponsor is desperate for a quality team to contest the likes of Zamalek, Al Ahly and Al Mansry for the second half of the league.
But there will be a premium on Simbo to prize him away from Sudan in January, with Atta still remains confident last week that the capital club would keep their star man.
“It would take an astronomical fee for him to go anywhere, “he said.
“We are not a selling club, we don’t need to sell. We are very much committed with our players and they are committed to us and that’s how we move on he boasted.”
Speaking to Football SierraLeone.Net from Gambia where he is on vacation Simbo revealed that he is aware of the offer but the club still remains adamant to release me adding the he had held talks with the club chairman but he said we will talk this over he said I will honour my contract after which I will be a free player.
However if this deal be a reality we will see Simbo been the second sierra Leonean to play for this club after Ismaiel Dyfan in 1983.
Meanwhile the Mountain wolves will be in action away to El Raja in the Egyptian league.
