Elmohamady Completes Hull Move

Ahmed Elmohamady has completed a move to Hull City for an undisclosed fee.

Sunderland's Egyptian winger Ahmed Elmohamady has joined Hull City on a permanent deal, for an undisclosed fee.

The winger joined Sunderland in 2010 on loan from Egyptian side ENPPI after impressing then manager Steve Bruce during a summer trial.

Dubbed the "Egyptian Beckham" many fans expected a little more of him than was shown in red and white, however this was mainly down to a misinterpretation of the nickname, which was actually due to his celebrity and looks in his homeland as opposed to his footballing ability.

Steve Bruce obviously took a shine to Elmo as he signed him permanently for Sunderland before the pillow-faced manager departed Sunderland. As Elmohamady's first team place appearances became increasingly rare, Bruce then took him to Hull City on loan last season where he won a Player Of The Year award.

Elmo leaves Sunderland with the club likely having recouped the £2.5m outlay paid in the first place for him, and with his chances of playing under Paolo Di Canio almost non-existent, the move works for all parties.
