Egyptian international Ahmed 'Mido' Hossam has signed a five-year contract with French side Olympic Marseille.
Mido is Egypt's most expensive player
The deal, worth US$13m, takes the striker from Ajax Amsterdam to southern France, and makes him the most expensive Egyptian player ever.
After two weeks of negotiations, Mido completed the signing at a ceremony in Cairo on Saturday.
Mido's departure from Ajax comes as no surprise after the Egyptian's many rows with the Dutch club's management, including a furious public bust-up with coach Ronald Koeman.
The bitter relationship led Ajax to loan the 20-year-old to Spanish side Celta Vigo in January.
He made an instant impact at Celta, helping them to a European Champions League place at the end of the season.
At Marseille, Mido will play alongside another African, Didier Drogba.
The Ivorian international was Marseille's first big signing this summer when he moved from fellow-French club Guingamp.
