Mohanad Ali has announced his intention to remain at Al Shorta next season, despite receiving offers from various European and Arab clubs.
The teenage striker, who recently turned 18, said: "I have received offers from Turkey, Greece, Germany and the Arabian Gulf, but I do not want to hurry and make a decision that I may regret later on in my life. Al Shorta gave me the chance to put my name out there and I want to stay at the club next season while studying my options for the future."
He continued: "My dream is to play in the top leagues in Europe. I am not interested in money, and that's why I have already rejected lucrative offers from Qatari sides. I want to make sure that I make the move when I am ready and that it is the right move for my career."
Al Shorta have announced that Thair Jassam has resigned from his position as Al Shorta manager after the 2-2 draw with Al Semawah due to health reasons.
Replacing Thair will be the club's assistant coach Haitham Al-Shaboul, who will fill in for the rest of this season. The Jordanian was also the club's assistant manager back in the 2012-13 campaign and helped them to a memorable league title win that year.
Al Shorta defender Ali Faez will join Qatari club Al Kharaitiyat after his season-long loan spell at Al Shorta ends.
The Iraq international, who was Al Shorta's top scorer in the 2015-16 season with five goals, has spent this season on loan at the Police from Turkish side Caykur Rizespor where he had limited game time. He has scored one goal for the Harps so far this season, which was against Al Hussein in a 3-0 win.
Ali Faez is set to be joined in Qatar by Al Zawraa youngster Hussein Ali who is signing for Qatar S.C.
