Ahmed Elmohamady Joins Hull City On Loan

Ahmed Elmohamady has moved to Hull City on loan.

After waiting most the summer for Steve Bruce to come and raid his former club for some 'talent' he's eventually gone and done that today by taking Ahmed Elmohamady on a season-long loan deal.

The move was confirmed late this afternoon, and it's largely speculated that fellow fringe midfielder David Meyler could be joining up with Elmo at the East Riding club.

It's a deal which surprises nobody at all really. Elmo was never going to get first team football here any time soon, and Steve Bruce is clearly an admirer having brought him to England in the first place. It should also go down well with Hull City's Egyptian owners who are keen to promote the side in Africa.

Sunderland have however included a clause in the deal which means that Elmo can be recalled in January if we're in a bit of an injury crisis.

What Elmohamady really needs more than anything is games. I'm not one of the Elmo-Haters per se, I just don't think he's all that good, mainly due to his massive inconsistency. A move to The Championship should be a good one for him though. If he can play regularly that's a bonus, if he can get some confidence then that's equally good. It could lead to something permanent, or it could bring him back a better player.

Thankfully too, the "Egyptian Beckham" is not that far down the road from his old muker Sess, although following signing a new contract he shouldn't be getting unhappy any time soon regardless.
