Vitesse Football club – Holland
On 29 January 2017, Mukhtar joined Vitesse on loan for the remainder of the 2016–17 campaign. On 19 February 2017, Mukhtar made his Vitesse debut in their 1–0 home defeat against Ajax, replacing Marvellous Nakamba in the 84th minute. On 4 February 2017, he played his first match for Jong Vitesse against SV Spakenburg. Mukhtar went onto appear in five more league games during his loan spell.
On 17 July 2017, Vitesse permanently signed Ali on a three-year deal.
Being of Somali origin, Mukthar represented England at both under-16 and under-17 level, however, pledged his allegiance towards the Saudi Arabia national team and made his senior debut on 7 October 2017 against Jamaica. This was possible based on the player's assertion that he was instead born in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.
Mukthar will play football for Saudi Arabia in the next Olympic Games in Tokyo. All at Brettenham are proud of Mukthar and his achievements and want to wish him all the best at the games and in his career.
