YOUNG Qatari midfielder Ahmed Moein is expected to join Al Sadd from now-defunct El Jaish.
ASPIRE Academy product Ahmed, who captained Qatar to Asian Under-19 Championship triumph in Myanmar in 2014, had cemented his place in Jaish’s starting eleven last season under French coach Sabri Lamouchi.
Moein had said recently that he would be playing for Sadd or Al Gharafa next season, but it is learnt that the former are closer to signing him.
A defensive midfielder, Moein has great technique and is calm on the ball. Sadd coach Jesualdo Ferreira will be eager to sign the 21-year-old, who had a two-year stint at Aspire-owned Belgian club KAS Eupen from 2014 to 2016. DSP
