Huddersfield Town will sign Egyptian international Ramadan Sobhi from Stoke City following the conclusion of this summer’s World Cup.
The 21-year-old winger will make the move north for a fee that will remain undisclosed.
Ramadan, a member of Egypt’s squad for the upcoming 2018 World Cup, flew in from their Italian training camp to sign a three-year contract running until the summer of 2021, with the Club having the option of a further season.
Sobhi is a right footed winger who has most commonly played on the left flank, but he is also capable of playing on the opposite side or behind the striker.
Having made waves in Egypt as one of the country’s brightest young talents, Ramadan will join Town with over 40 Premier League appearances under his belt following two seasons in Staffordshire.

Huddersfield Town Head Coach David Wagner commented:
“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.”
