Elmohamady coy over future

Kristan Heneage

Ahmed Elmohamady says he will wait until the summer before deciding whether or not his future lies with Hull City.

Elmohamady, 25, rejoined the Tigers from Sunderland on loan on transfer deadline day after returning to the Stadium of Light in mid January - following Martin O'Neill's decision to recall the player.

Hull boss Steve Bruce, who coached Elmohamady during his time at Sunderland, is eager to secure the Egypt international on a permanent deal.

Unwilling to commit his future to either club, Elmohamady confirmed his decision will be made at the end of the current campaign.

"I really enjoy being here because we play very good football and I really hope we can keep it going and get promotion," he said. "It will make everybody happy to go back to the Premier League. But I have a contract with Sunderland so we'll see what happens. I'm just on loan at Hull at the moment. After the season has finished, we'll see if there's a decision."

With Hull's Egyptian owners already having recruited two of Elmohamady's international colleagues in Gedo and Ahmed Fathi from Al-Ahly, a deal for the player who has 18 months left on his current Sunderland deal would seem likely. Should he complete a move to the KC Stadium, he will follow former Sunderland man David Meyler in making his temporary stay permanent.

"I've been in the UK two-and-a-half years without any other Egyptian players in the Premier League and the Championship," Elmohamady said. "It's good for me, it's good for them and it's very good for the national team to have three players in England now - and very good for Hull too."
