The Baggies signed Gabr from Zamalek in the January transfer window on loan for the remainder of the 2017-18 campaign.
According to The Express & Star, West Brom had to pay the Egyptian club a loan fee of £438,000 for the central defender and have the option to secure the services of the 29-year-old on a permanent contract for £1.1 million.
Good decision from West Bromwich Albion?
As reported by The Express & Star, Gabr failed to play a single match for the West Brom first team and could future just twice for the Under-23 team.
It makes sense for the Baggies, who will play in the Championship next season after getting relegated from the Premier League, not to sign the 29-year-old centre-back on a permanent contract, as he has not make any impact whatsoever - although he is involved in the ongoing 2018 World Cup finals in Russia with Egypt.
