Dutch sports sources, including Karim El Ahmadi, reported that El Ahmadi’s current team Feyenoord will soon sign a contract with Ittihad Jeddah for the Moroccan footballer.
According to Voetbal International, Feyenoord head coach Giovanni van Bronckhorst recently hinted that he will send El Ahmadi on an “adventure.”
The Dutch club already sent the footballer on loan to UAE team Al Ahli Club in 2011. After the Ahli adventure, Feyenoord signed another deal with Aston Villa for another two seasons (2012-2014), for GBP 2 million. The footballer made 56 appearances with Aston Villa.
El Ahmadi joined Feyenoord in 2008 and played two seasons with them before joining Al Ahli on loan.
El Ahmadi also made the list of the Atlas Lions who participated in the 2018 World Cup.
If El Ahmadi accepts his deal with the Saudi club, he will be the second Moroccan to join a Saudi club after Achraf Bencharki, who decided to join Saudi Football Club Al Hilal earlier this year.
