Karim el Ahmadi
UAE outfit Al Ahli have completed the transfer of highly rated midfielder Karim el Ahmadi from Feyenoord on a loan deal. The Morocco international has signed a contract until the end of the season with his new club.
The 25-year-old El Ahmadi joined Feyenoord from Twente in the summer of 2008, but he never really managed to live up to the high expectations in De Kuip.
El Ahmadi has made 63 Eredivisie appearances for the Stadionclub, scoring two goals in the process.
The midfielder had previously been linked with Eredivisie table toppers PSV, but the Eindhoven side eventually never made a move for El Ahmadi.
Al Ahli have the option to make the move permanent at the end of the season.
