Egyptian giants Al Ahly have terminated the contract of one of their foreign stars, effective immediately.
After joining the club from Tunisia’s CS Sfaxien in 2016, Nigerian star Junior Ajayi has parted ways with Pitso Mosimane’s side.

This season, though, the attacker failed to make a single appearance for the Red Devils, having seemingly fallen down the pecking order following the arrivals of Bafana Bafana forward Percy Tau and Mozambican star Luis Miquissone.
A string of injuries have also hindered the winger’s progress over the past few months, leading to the Egyptian giants’ decision to part ways with the winger just before the upcoming transfer window.
