With Pulis' record of foreign signings do you think a deal like this is a kind of middle ground between him and Hammond?!

That's my take on it. It's a sensible decision. If Pulis doesn't like him then Hegazi becomes this seasons Galloway, Pritchard, Varela etc.

If it works out then fantastic, he could be a great CB for years to come at a bargain price - the point is there's no real negatives, or at least they don't have massive consequences.

It also shows on some level, that Pulis is willing to accept foreign signings.

Imagine Brunty swinging in a corner with Hegazy, Gmac, Evans, Dawson and Rondon attacking it.

A Pulis dream.

Jokes aside welcome to the club Ahmed! Hope your injuries are behind you and that you can have a long and successful career at the Albion

sounds good - cover for GMAC who isnt going to Hong Kong and is getting on a bit anyway

I've got wednesday off work so i can watch us play Leicester City  in that tournament so i will see how he plays (if he plays)
yes not sure he will be going out there, I've not seen anything mentioned? May be better to get into local stuff & start to catch up with pre season training?

"Hegazi jetted in from Cairo to complete his deal before swiftly heading to Hong Kong where he joined Albion's squad on duty at the Premier League Asia Trophy.

Albion will need international clearance for Hegazi to play in the tournament, which they open on Wednesday with their semi-final challenge against Leicester City".

Seems like a low-risk and sensible piece of business - still hope there is a first choice CB on the way, but look forward to seeing what this chap can add. Welcome to the club!

Don't know anything about him, hopefully turn out to be a shrewd deal.

Glad we are seeing some new faces. Do people reckon that's the end of our Zouma interest, if there was any?

Zouma has been pictured in full Stoke training gear so think that's pretty final.

Welcome to the club, hope you can break into first team, personally with pulis in charge think you might struggle. Any good as a left back?

ideal say that's the back line sorted for season, Brunt and Nyom will cover left back with Dawson  and Mcclean covering right back and the fivecenter halves Gmac,Evans ,Dawson,Nyom and Hegazi covering centerfield back positions

The thing I'll be looking for is how quick is he. Given his height, his ability in the air should speak for itself, but there's more to defending than just heading long high crosses away. The big criticism of our older defenders is that they can't turn quickly enough and are easily done for pace. That's part of the reason we play so deep.

is this a joke. I think we are still 2 defender's short one centre half and left back. McLean right back? Really?

Al Ahly season is just coming to an end.
On the one hand this means he is 'match fit' (however i assume Eygyptian match fit is quite diff from EPL match fit though). On the other, means he has been playing his season and is just starting another one at double the pace he is used to.

If he can "read" a game, he wont have to dash about....just be in position and ready.

we have now got five center halves two of which can play the fullback rolls and two midfielders who can cover full back positions.

Hopefully our scouting system has found a player no one else can see, one minute though we are linked with smalling, jones and zoumba and then we get a complete unknown. I am getting very worried about this season the chairman said we would sign 3 players who would get into our 1st team so far I can only 1.
It's easy to have faith in yourself and have discipline when you're a winner, when you're number one. What you got to have is faith and discipline when you're not a winner.

have you actually read the other posts? haven't seen anything that doesn't welcome the player or posters not encouraged by the signing .
