Spurs departure for Ghaly

22 January 2009 01:26
Hossam Ghaly has ended his Tottenham Hotspur nightmare by joining Saudi Arabian club Al-Nasr. Ghaly, 27, had not featured in the north London club's first team for almost two years and has now been allowed to leave on a free transfer. The Egypt international originally lost his place under former boss Martin Jol when he threw his shirt to the ground after being substituted in a Premier League game against Blackburn Rovers in May 2007. Ghaly was angry as his arrival in the match had been as a first-half substitute. The former Feyenoord midfielder was loaned out to Derby County last season, but he failed to earn a full-time switch to the Rams and returned to White Hart Lane. However, the closest he came to an appearance was after as an unused substitute during Spurs' Carling Cup campaign this season under new boss Harry Redknapp. He has signed a three-year contract with Al-Nasr.
