QNB Stars League’s promoted team Al Markhiya, in their bid to further strengthen the squad, signed striker Abdulqadir Ilyas on loan from Al Duhail.

Ilyas, who has proved his worth as an attacker, has also played for Umm Salal and Al Sailiya. He is expected to join the squad as they train ahead of their forthcoming QSL Cup fixtures. They will play Al Rayyan on Tuesday and Al Ahli on 12th November in the third and fourth round respectively.

Al Markhiya, coached by Yousef Adam, are 10th in the QNB Stars League standings with five points. They had played out a 1-1 draw with Al Gharafa in Round 7.

The Oryxes had recently roped in former Qatar national team defender Bilal Mohammed and midfielder Anas Mubarak, both from Al Gharafa.
