Ahly have announced they will extend the contracts of experienced duo Hossam Ghaly and Emad Meteb for one season.

"The extensions were decided today after meetings with the two players," the club's football director Sayed Abdel-Hafiz said on Sunday through their official website, showing appreciation for their "unconditional agreement."

The two former Egypt stars have been key players for Ahly since the beginning of their careers, gaining popularity and experience.

Ghaly, 35, who had successful journeys playing abroad with Feyenoord, Tottenham Hotspur, Derby County, Al-Nassr and Lierse, has settled down at his boyhood club since 2014.

"I am so happy with the extension. I have always dreamed of ending my playing career at Ahly," Ghaly said.

The Capitino won a series of trophies with the Cairo-based club, including two CAF Champions Leagues, one Confederation Cup, one Super Cup and many domestic championships.

Rarely spotted on the pitch this season, Meteb, 34, was part of Ahly's greatest era, inspiring them to win dozens of trophies including three Champions Leagues, three Super Cups, one Confederation Cup and over 15 domestic championships.

Ahly, who are currently leading the Egyptian League table with 52 points after playing 20 games, are playing South African side Bidvest Wits on Saturday in the CAF Champions League round of 32.
