Nigeria forward Junior Ajayi is close to renewing his contract with Egyptian giants Al Ahly following his return to action after a lengthy injury-induced lay-off, reports Completesports.com.
Ajayi joined Al Ahly from Tunisian side CS Sfaxien in 2016, and has been a key first team player ever since, winning several laurels with the club.
He has played 80 games across all competitions for the former African champions, scoring 24 goals and providin 19 assists.
The 24-year-old has already won the Egyptian Premier League title twice, the Egyptian Cup and the Egyptian Super Cup since his arrival at the club.
Ajayi missed the majority of last season after copping a injury in a CAF Champions League clash against Simba of Tanzania in June 2018.
He has featured in eight games in all competitions for Al Ahly this season following his return to action and has scored thrice.
“Ajayi is on the verge of signing a new contract, only the final touches are missing,” Al Ahly director of football Sayed AbdelHafiz told Kingfut.com.
“It will be done in a couple of days.
“What slowed the procedure is that we didn’t have any rest since returning from Tanzania.
“We then had a very important game against Entag El-Harby in the league, we will end everything soon.”
Al Ahly are currently second on the Egyptian League table with 42 points. They will face El Dakhleya in their next game on February 20.
