Terriers Sign Sobhi For £5.7M

Ramadan Sobhi

“We’re looking forward to working hard with Ramadan on the training pitch."

Huddersfield Town have announced the signing of Egyptian international Ramadan Sobhi from Stoke City.

The 21-year-old winger will make the move north for a fee that will remain undisclosed - but is believed to be £5.7M.

Ramadan, a member of Egypt’s squad for the upcoming 2018 World Cup, signed a three-year contract running until the summer of 2021, with the club having the option of a further season.

Huddersfield Town head coach David Wagner told the club's official website: “I’m very happy that we will be able to welcome Ramadan Sobhi to Huddersfield Town.

“He’s a real talent and has achieved a lot for a player who is only 21 years old, playing over 20 times for his country ahead of this summer’s World Cup.

“Just as Jonas Lössl, Elias Kachunga and Laurent Depoitre did, Ramadan will join our club on the back of a challenging season. However, he already has a lot of the qualities that we look for in our ‘Terriers Identity’; he’s skilful, direct and very quick-thinking. He still has a lot of space to improve too, which is very exciting!

“We’re looking forward to working hard with Ramadan on the training pitch to give him every chance of success at Huddersfield Town.”
