The Egypt international told FilGoal.com: “Reading sent an official offer to PAOK.
“The offer is worth £500,000 and they want me to join them in January.
“Playing in the Premier League is the dream of any footballer.
“Of course, I would like to play in The Premiership. But if now isn’t the right time, then so be it.
“I don’t want PAOK fans to think that I am abandoning the team because I love and respect the club and its supporters.
“PAOK is my home and the place where I became a star.”
