Cape Town - Bidvest Wits have announced the signing of Egyptian striker Amr Gamal on a season-long loan-deal from Al Ahly.

The Egyptian club, record eight-time African champions, have recently confirmed the transfer on their official website.

According to the Kingfut website, coach Gavin Hunt's Clever Boys will pay Al Ahly $200 000 for his services.

The Egypt international is a youth team product at Al Ahly and has netted 29 goals in around 100 matches for his club since being promoted to the first team in 2013.

The 26-year-old forward has three Premier League titles, two Egyptian Super Cups, the 2013 African Champions League, the 2014 CAF Confederation Cup and two CAF Super Cups winners' medals to his credit.

Hunt's men next face Free State Stars at Goble Park on Wednesday and will be hoping that their new recruit can hit the ground running to add much-needed goals to the PSL champions.

Kick-off is at 19:30.
