The 18 year old joined the Egyptian side on loan in January to help ease their goal scoring issues and he wasted no time in making his mark with a powerful header to hand him team a huge win against Zamalek on his debut.

He ended the season with six goals in 18 games, a form which caught the attention of Celta Vigo who have signed him to their B team but he will spend most of his time with the main team.

“We are counting on Victory, who is a very young player, who comes to B but due to characteristics he can play for the first team like Miguel Rodríguez,” said Carlos Mouriño, the president of Celta Vigo.
