Former Hearts of Oak captain Thomas Abbey has arrived in Cairo to officially begin his career with giants Ismaily SC, ATL FM Sports can confirm.

The club announced the signing of the versatile Ghanaian midfielder on a free transfer on Wednesday evening after passing a medical. His contract with the Phobians elapsed after the end of the 2016/2017 season.

The 24-year-old will start training with his new teammates on Thursday.

Alexis Sanchez

Alexis Sanchez is in Manchester United's squad to face Yeovil in their FA Cup fourth-round tie on Friday, Jose Mourinho has confirmed.

Sanchez completed his move to United on Monday in a swap deal that saw Henrikh Mkhitaryan join Arsenal.

The Chile international could make his United debut against Sky Bet League Two side Yeovil, Mourinho said, but the rise in form of Jesse Lingard and Anthony Martial has not been unnoticed.

"This is life in big clubs, in big clubs you have big players, you have big competition," said Mourinho.

"In big clubs you have big responsibilities, you have to try and go into every competition in a serious way. You cannot do that with 11 players. It's absolutely impossible.

"There's space for everybody."

Mourinho added: "I'm very happy and have to say with pride the evolution of Lingard, Martial, Scott McTominay and these kind of young guys.

"At the same time you need a combination with players like [Nemanja] Matic, Alexis - people that have experience in where we want to be - fighting for titles.

"Now we have five attacking players of quality, [Juan] Mata, [Marcus] Rashford, [Romelu] Lukaku, Martial, Alexis and it's fantastic for me and for the team, if the players one day are on the bench and they don't like it, I'm happy with that."

Mourinho believes the Sanchez-Mkhitaryan transfer suits both Arsenal and Manchester United and said deals between Premier League rivals should "happen more times".

Henrikh Mkhitaryan can be 'even better' at Arsenal than he was at United, says Mourinho

The United manager said he had no regrets about Mkhitaryan's departure and said the Armenia international could be "even better" for Arsenal.

But Sanchez offers United even more options in forward areas, according to Mourinho.

"I saw him successful with every manager with every position," he said. "He's a player that becomes more than a player because he can play in every position in attack.

"Alexis changed from a fantastic club to a giant club, and Mkhi changed also for a fantastic club. It was a great deal for everybody."
