“As a player, I still have a lot to offer, and doing so with Al-Sadd is a great honour,” said the 24-year-old midfielder.
“Al Sadd is a great club and it is great to be one of its members. We have a balance between youth and experience in the team.
Al Sadd also announced the return of attacking midfielder Rodrigo Tabata with the Brazilian joining on a free transfer, having played for the Doha-based club in 2014.
Tabata was loaned from Al Rayyan and helped Al Sadd win the 2014 Qatar Amir Cup.
Born in Aracatuba, Brazil, Tabata played for several Brazilian outfits - including giants Santos - before moving to Turkey where he played for Gaziantepspor and Besiktas.
He joined Al Rayyan in 2011 and was part of the squad that won the 2015-2016 Qatar Stars League title with Tabata emerging top scorer.
