Arsenal’s head of football operations Huss Fahmy has formally left the club this afternoon.
Sources close to the club told football.london that Fahmy’s departure from the Gunners was ‘amicable’ and it comes just three months after Raul Sanllehi was removed from his position as head of football at Emirates Stadium.
Fahmy joined Arsenal as part of the reshuffle that included Vinai Venkatesham becoming chief executive and Sanellhi becoming football director.
He arrived from Sky in 2017 where he served as the head of legal and commercial for Team Sky, the professional cycling outfit where he negotiated with a number of important rights holders.
After arriving at the club Fahmy initially shadowed transfer negotiator Dick Law before replacing him in September, and was involved in contract extensions for the likes of Mohamed Elneny, a number of academy graduates and more recently Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s new deal.
Fahmy was also involved in the managerial appointments of Unai Emery and Mikel Arteta.
