Al-Nasr midfielder Awad Khamees could be suspended for up to four months, Tunisian lawyer and expert on FIFA regulations, Ali Abbas, told Al Arabiya.
The ongoing Khamees saga started when the player signed a contract to join Al-Hilal starting next season, before Al-Nasr came out announcing that the player has extended his stay at the club by signing a new deal.
“We heard that Awad signed with Al-Hilal on the agreement of receiving a certain sum of payment on a certain date, and if Al-Nasr’s extension was signed after the due date without the player receiving the payment, then the player’s signature with Al-Hilal becomes invalid,” Abbas told Al Arabiya.
“But if Khamees extended his contract with Al-Nasr after receiving payments from Al-Hilal, then he will be suspended for four months for signing for two clubs at the same time.”
The Khamees case has occupied the greatest attention among Saudi football fans over the past few days.
