Egyptian football player Mohamed Mohsen Abou-Greisha, striker of the Ismaili club, is set to join China's Zhejiang Lucheng club, local sports website Filgoal.com reported on Tuesday.
The 27-year-old Egyptian striker, who is on a one-year loan deal, will fly to Hangzhou, capital of China's Zhejiang Province on Thursday to get started with the Chinese side.
"I am very happy with this experience, especially that the Chinese league has developed in recent years," Abou-Greisha was quoted as saying.
Abou-Greisha, who struggled to find his place in Ismaili's starting eleven for almost two seasons, revealed that he received the offer via former coach Patrice Neveu.
The Egyptian player is the second one to leave Ismaili this month after full-back Sayed Moawad's move to Turkey's Trabzonspor.
The Ismaili club based in the Egyptian city of Ismailia, some 120 km northeast of Cairo, is one of the leading football clubs in the Arab country.
