Hull seal Elmohamady capture
Hull City have completed the signing of winger Ahmed Elmohamady from Sunderland.
The Egypt international has agreed a three-year-deal at the KC Stadium after two successful loan spells at the club last season. Joining the club for an undisclosed fee ahead of their first season back in the Premier League, Elmohamady revealed his delight at securing a permanent return.
"It feels great to be here permanently, especially after what happened here last season," Elmohamady told the club's official website. "It was a great year and I thoroughly enjoyed playing for this club. Everything about it was great - the players, the staff, the fans - and I am delighted to be here again.
"It's going to be great to play in the Premier League again, especially with Hull City, and I am very much looking forward to the new season. Moving here was an easy decision to make. The fans are fantastic and it will be enjoyable to play in front of them in the Premier League."
First brought by Steve Bruce from Egyptian side ENPPI in 2010, Elmohamady completed a permeant move to Sunderland the following summer. Finding opportunities limited under Bruce's successor Martin O'Neill, he admitted the chance to work with his former manager was appealing.
"The manager was the one who brought me over from Egypt to play for Sunderland and now he has brought me here," added Elmohamady. "I really enjoy playing for him and I look forward to doing so again now. We've had World Cup qualifiers with Egypt. I will now have a few days off before I come back for pre-season training."
