CAIRO: Hosni Abd-Rabou is set to start his two-year loan spell with Ahly Dubai, according to UAE media reports.
The 25-year-old arrived in UAE on Saturday and received a warm welcome, even though Ahly Dubai are yet to unveil him officially.
Abd-Rabou is set to join the Emirate side despite the fact that his infamous transfer saga with Egyptian champions Ahly is far from being over.
Al-Khaleeg newspaper reported that the Egypt midfielder will be with the Dubai team when they start the pre-season training on Sunday.
Ahly Dubai finished third in the Emirate league last season, five points adrift of champions Al-Shabab.
