Greek Super League outfit PAOK FC have announced the re-signing of Egypt international Amr Warda on a permanent deal. The attacking midfielder is coming from Volos FC. Warda had only left PAOK last September, joining their Greek Super League rivals Volos FC on a one-year contract.
However, it seems that his short stint with Volos caught the attention of PAOK manager Pablo García. He who decided to re-sign the Egyptian just three months after letting him go.
The 27-year-old has scored two goals while providing one assist in ten games this season. He thus helped Volos sit sixth on the league table.
Warda was also linked with a move to Aris Thessaloniki. But the player opted to return back to PAOK, with whom he had already lifted the Greek Cup.
Reports also emerged that Warda could head back to Egypt through boyhood club Al Ahly as Pitso Mosimane wants to strengthen his midfield.
However, the 27-year-old winger has signed a one-and-a-half year deal with PAOK. The club will thus keep him until July 2022.
PAOK currently sit third with 28 points, seven behind league leaders Olympiacos, who have Ahmed Hassan Kouka in their ranks.
Warda originally joined PAOK back in January 2017. However, he had a turbulent time with the Black and Whites. And he was sent out on loans at Atromitos twice as well as AE Larisa.
Overall with the Black and Whites, he scored three times while assisting four in 36 appearances, winning two Greek Cups with them.
The former Al Ahly man will likely make his return against his former employers, Volos As they host them next Sunday, January 10th at the Toumba Stadium.
