Badji, who had previously been a top performer under Rene Weiler, joined Al Ahly in January 2020 from Austria’s Rapid Vienna.
Badji was replaced by Pitso Mosimane as South African manager.
Badji failed to score on three occasions in his 23 appearances. The board decided to loan the forward to Turkish Super Lig outfit MKE Ankaragucu.
Badji joined French side Amiens last summer on a one year loan deal. The club had the option to make it permanent by paying $1.8 million.
Badji impressed in his debut season of Ligue 2 with 13 goals, three assists and 26 games. Amiens now have the option to sign Badji permanently.
Badji, 24, is now ready to assist Amiens in their pursuit of Ligue 1 promotion after finishing last season in a disappointing 14th.
: “Amiens Sporting Club completed the transfer Aliou Badji, after activating the option of buying in the Senegalese striker’s contract on Saturday,” Al Ahly stated in a statement.
: “Amir Tawfik (head of Al Ahly’s transfers department) announced that Badji would join Amiens permanently after a successful one year loan with the French side.”
