The 26-year-old has been listed among the substitutes in each of Elgin’s last three games and although he has yet to feature, the Iraq-born defender has impressed manager Gavin Price enough to warrant a deal.
Price has spoken of his desire to bolster his defensive options, following the departures of Tom Grivosti and Creag Little.
El-Zubaidi came through the youth ranks at Hamilton Accies, before being released in 2015.
The 26-year-old has gone on to have stints with Rovers, Cowdenbeath and Stirling Albion since then, along with a spell in non-league football.
El-Zubaidi could make his City debut in Tuesday’s home fixture against League Two leaders Kelty Hearts.
