West Brom defender Ahmed Hegazi has joined Saudi Professional League side Al-Ittihad.

Hegazi has moved to the eight-time Saudi champions on loan, with a permanent transfer agreed for next summer.

The 29-year-old centre-half joined West Brom from Egyptian outfit El Ahly in July 2017 and made 104 appearances for the Baggies, scoring four goals.

Hegazi made 14 starts in the Sky Bet Championship last season as Albion were promoted to the Premier League.

“The club would like to thank Ahmed for his contribution over the last three seasons and wishes him, and his family, all the very best in the future,” West Brom said on their official website.
