Huddersfield have completed the signing of Egyptian Ramadan Sobhi from Stoke City for an undisclosed fee.

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.

The 21-year old flew in from Egypt’s World Cup training camp to sign the deal at the John Smith Stadium.

Huddersfield Town Head Coach David Wagner commented on the club’s website, "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."
