Doha, Qatar: Newly-elected Al Shamal President Ibrahim Al Sada on Saturday announced the signing of Algerian striker Baghdad Bounedjah, who is set to stay in Qatar for the 10th consecutive season.

The Qatar Stars League (QSL) side has roped in the former Al Sadd player for two seasons, Al Sada said on the sidelines of the club's General Assembly.

“We are happy to have Baghdad Bounedjah in our team as we build up for the new season. We wish him the best and hope for an improved performance from the team in the forthcoming season,” said the president.

The announcement brought an end to speculations over Bounedjah's future, who was earlier linked to a move to Saudi Arabia.

The 32-year-old left his longtime club Al Sadd last month after playing for them for nine seasons.

Bounedjah has been one of the most successful players in Qatar's domestic football scoring 150 goals in 157 appearances for the Wolves. He also has scored 30 international goals.

Al Shamal are aiming for a strong comeback after they finished in ninth position in the 12-team QSL. They will set up their preseason training camp in Tiel, the Netherlands from July 14 to August 2. The 2024-2025 QSL season is scheduled to begin on August 9.
