Speaking to KingFut, Utaka said: “Yes it’s true, I have been offered a pre-contract by Ismaily and we’re in the process of finalising the deal.

“As you know as a professional player you get to be offered a pre-contract first then you can sign the contract. That step has been done.

“All that remains now is my signature, you can say that it is 99% complete. I’m currently in Nigeria but will head to France before going to Egypt,” Utaka confirmed.

Utaka, 34, played for the club from 1999-2001, winning the Egypt Cup and league top scorer.

The former Portsmouth star is a free agent after leaving Turkish side Sivasspor.

Utaka is set to become Ismaily’s second signing ahead of the new season after the team signed former Real Betis defender Amro Tarek.
