Villarreal’s Afif joins Al Sadd

Villarreal forward Akram Afif has extended his loan deal at Qatari club Al Sadd for an additional season, it has been confirmed.

The 21-year-old joined the Yellow Submarine two years ago from Belgian club Eupen and whilst he has never made an appearance for the club, spent a season on loan at Sporting Gijon.

The left-sided forward has netted eight goals in 31 international caps for Qatar and previously spent two years on loan at Sevilla’s youth system.

Afif is tipped to be one of the mainstays for the Qatari national team for their World Cup in four years time.
