West Brom defender Ahmed Hegazi appears to be on the verge of sealing his exit from the Hawthorns.

The Egyptian international is set to join Al-Ittihad, in a move that is said to be worth up to £4million for the Baggies.

Slaven Bilic claimed that Hegazi isn’t going anywhere this week, but that appears to have changed very quickly with these negotiations.

The Mirror reported that the defender is currently the highest-earner at the Hawthorns, due to a clause in his contract from the previous spell in the Premier League.

Bilic has a number of defenders available to him including Branislav Ivanovic, Cedric Kipre, Semi Ajayi and Kyle Bartley.

It appears that Hegazi could have forced the move, which is being described as “life-changing” as he sets his sight on Saudi Arabia.

Everything about this has moved quickly over the weekend, with Hegazi even completing the 90 minutes in the 0-0 draw against Burnley.

His partnership with Ivanovic was certainly impressive, as they dominated the physical duo of Chris Wood and Ashley Barnes.

Many West Brom fans have reacted to the news of Hegazi’s pending exit, and it appears that they are split on his future.

Some claim that the money involved makes it a no-brainer for the Albion, but some believe that his experience could have been vital in earning Premier League survival.
