Smouha have completed the signing of former Al Ahly’s Nigerian winger Junior Ajayi on a three-year from Libyan side Al-Nasr Benghazi.
The 26-year-old signed for Al Ahly in 2016 from Tunisia’s CS Sfaxien, after having won the Olympic bronze medal with Nigeria.
He made a total of 161 games for the club, scoring 41 goals while providing 30 assists, and became a fan favourite, having guided the club to two CAF Champions Leagues, four league titles, two Egypt Cups, and two Egypt Super Cups.
Moreover, Ajayi was part of the Al Ahly team that won the 2021 Club World Cup bronze medal, netting a penalty against Palmeiras in the third-placed playoff.
As his short deal with Al Nasr came to an end this July, Ajayi will now return to Egypt through Smouha on a free transfer after signing a three-year contract.
Ajayi becomes Smouha’s third summer signing after deals for Asmadat Abou Kheir defender Mahmoud El Malek and Ahmed Hussein from El-Nasr.
