DUBAI // Al Nasr have signed goalkeeper Ismail Rabea for Dh15 million on a five-year deal from 2008 champions Al Shabab. Rabea, 27, becomes the club's eighth new arrival of the summer as they aim to end their 24-year title drought, joining Dutch-Moroccan striker Anouar Diba, 26, who arrived from Qatar's Al Wakra, and Iranian playmaker Iman Mobali, also 26, signed from Zabeel rivals Al Wasl. The sale of Rabea has put a lot of pressure on the interim managing committee of Shabab. The deal has angered the fans and sources claim members of the interim committee are considering stepping down over the issue.

Ajman have signed their second foreign professional, Brazilian striker Valdes Miro, 23. arizvi@thenational.ae
