The 29-year-old right-back only made 30 first-team appearances since signing for the club in July 2019.
He was part of the treble-winning squad of 2019/20, but his progression was held back by a series of injuries and the form of Jeremie Frimpong.
Frimpong also recently departed for Germany with Everton’s Jonjoe Kenny brought in as a replacement.
Neil Lennon also has Anthony Ralston and Kristofer Ajer as right-back options.
Celtic confirmed ElHamed’s move on Wednesday. Posting on Twitter, they said: “The club would like to thank Hatem for his contributions at Celtic and wish him the very best for his future career.”
