The Siya crew explained on Wednesday evening that the teenager was jetting out to Egypt from OR Tambo airport in order to undergo a medical and complete a move to the eight-time CAF Champions League winners, and the move has now been finalised according to Wits.
While the amount that Bidvest Wits, who gave the player his platform, have been paid in return for his signature has not been revealed and reports have suggested that it is around the R17m mark.
It remains to be seen whether the 19-year-old South African international will be able to make his debut against El Geish this weekend, however, he will no doubt be chomping at the bit to get going. He has signed a four-year deal.
No South African player has ever played at Al Ahly or in the Egyptian Premier League before.
