Hull have ended striker Amr Zaki's loan spell and the player will return to Zamalek, according to his agent.
Zaki, who enjoyed a good start to his loan spell with Wigan during the 2008-09 season, was hoping to replicate his success in the Premier League as he secured a loan return with Hull in January.
However, he has failed to score during his six appearances for the Tigers and has suffered from a niggling knee injury.
"Hull coach Iain Dowie officially informed Zaki that his loan deal came to an end," agent Nader Shawki told FilGoal. "Zaki will return to Cairo on Sunday to join up with Zamalek.
"Zaki needs ten more days to complete his recovery, so it [would] be very difficult for Dowie to rely on him during the remaining games of the season because he will not be fully fit."
Zaki is thought to be unlikely to be eligible to feature for Zamalek in their Egyptian Cup campaign.
