Etoile du Sahel striker Emeka Opara has turned down the chance to join top Egyptian club Ismaily after they insisted he undergo a trial, the player’s agent said.

Ismaily president, Emad Soliman, insisted Opara feature in a friendly against Arab Contractors on Tuesday, but the 24-year-old former Enyimba front man rejected the arrangement.

“There was an agreement with Ismaily that Opara was coming to sign a contract,” agent Mounir Hassan said.
“But then they wanted to watch him instead, and this won’t happen. He will not be tested.”

Opara was lined up to sign for Ismaily on a free transfer at the end of his contract with Etoile in December.
The former Kaiserslautern forward will now return to Tunisia, according to his Egyptian agent.
