ENPPI's out-of-favor playmaker Ahmed Saied is close to signing for Ittihad, the player said on Saturday.

"I will sit down with Ittihad chairman Mohamed Moselhi on Monday to discuss the deal's details," Saied told

"Arab Contractors were also interested in signing me but I prefer to join Ittihad."

Saied joined Ittihad from then Premier League side Olympic in the summer of 2008 but was handed few opportunities to prove his worth.

The 28-year-old is yet to play any game with the petroleum club this season.

Ittihad, who usually struggle at the wrong end of the league table, are enjoying a fine run of results under Brazilian coach Carlos Cabral.

The Alexandria-based club, who lie eighth in the 16-team table, haven't been defeated since losing 2-1 to promoted Gouna in September.
