Al Duhail loan Ahmed Yasser to Vissel Kobe


QNB Stars League title holders Al Duhail agreed the loan deal of defender Ahmed Yasser to Japan’s Vissel Kobe.

Ahmed was loaned out to Al Rayyan in last season’s January transfer window after he completed another loan spell at Spanish club Cultural Leonesa.

The 24-year-old had displayed a high level in the AFC Champions League as well and that caught the attention of top J1 League club Vissel Kobe, who sought him on loan to assist the likes of Spanish star Andres Iniesta.

Meanwhile, Al Duhail forward Ismail Mohammed successfully underwent an operation after he sustained a double fracture on his left leg during their 3-0 QNB Stars League Week 1 win over promoted team Al Shahania on Sunday.

He will be out of action at least for six to seven months.

Ismail was fouled in the 52nd minute of their match by Al Shahania’s Nadir Awadh.
