The club has signed four new players in the January transfer window with the aim of strengthening the squad in a bid to win the club's sixth Iraqi Premier League title.
The four incoming players are left-back Dhurgham Ismail, returning to the club after three years in Turkey, winger Karrar Jassim, a winner of the AFC Asian Cup in 2007, Senegalese midfielder Dominique Mendy, coming from rivals Al Quwa Al Jawiya, and Tunisian defender Zied Derbali, arriving from Al Muharraq of Bahrain.
Young goalkeeper Abdulaziz Ammar has also been sent on loan to Al Semawah while striker Mohammed Jabbar Shokan and defender Ahmed Nadhim have been sold to Al Minaa and Al Naft respectively.
The club has announced in this official statement the rejection of six offers for striker Mohanad Ali following his impressive Asian Cup campaign:
Al Shorta will undergo a short training camp in Erbil to prepare for the return of the Iraqi Premier League.
The league has been suspended for over a month due to the Iraq national team's participation in the AFC Asian Cup, while Al Shorta have been eliminated from the Iraqi FA Cup 2-1 on aggregate by Al Kahrabaa.
The camp will include some friendly games featuring the club's new signings.
