Stanley Ohawuchi has left Wadi Degla and signed for Saudi side Al-Qadisiyah, the Nigerian frontman confirmed on Twitter on Thursday.

Writing on his @StanleyOhawuchi handle, the 27-year-old confirmed he'd put pen to paper on a deal with the Saudi Pro League outfit, having come to the end of a loan stay with SC Zamalek.

"Done deal and officially Al-Qadisiyah FC player," the forward began. "Thanks to God, my agents Yahia Aly, Ibrahim Azab, my friend Mohsen and all Zamalek fans."

Ohawuchi moved to Zamalek on a season-loan loan from Wadi Degla in August 2016, having enjoyed two prolific years in the Egyptian top flight.

He has netted three goals for the White Knights in the CAF Champions League this season - making him the Cairene giants' top scorer in the tournament - and has scored a further six goals in other competitions.

The frontman represented Nigeria at U-20 level, and has previously featured for Atletico Baleares and Sliema Wanderers of Malta, having begun his career with Bayelsa United and Heartland in Nigeria.

Ohawuchi won the Egyptian Cup in 2016 and the Egyptian Super Cup earlier this year, and will be charged with helping Qadisiyah improve on their 10th place league finish last season.
