CAIRO: Gaish coach Farouk Gaafar confirmed that the club completed the transfer of defender Mohsen Hendawi from Ghazl Mahalla.
I convinced Hendawi to join Gaish starting from January, Gaafar told FilGoal.com
Hendawi s got brilliant technical and physical abilities. He will be a great addition to our squad.
The 27-year-old full back was targeted by both Ahly and Zamalek last summer, before Mahalla refused to allow him to leave the club.
Hendawi s strong performances last season earned him several Egypt call-ups during the World Cup qualification preliminary stages.
Meanwhile, Gaafar added that he is on the verge of concluding a deal bringing Zamalek striker Abdel-Halim Ali to the club.
Gaish are 13th in the league table on 14 points from 13 games.
