Premier League newcomers Hull City have completed the permanent deal of one of the players that helped them in their push from promotion last season.

 

Winger Ahmed Elmohamady spent last season on loan at the club from Sunderland but has now signed a three-year deal after an undisclosed fee was agreed between the two clubs.

 

The Egypt international was happy to continue working under manager Steve Bruce, the manager that brought him to Sunderland, as well continuing the hard work the team put in last season to earn promotion.

“I really enjoy playing for him and I look forward to doing so again,” the winger said about Bruce.

“It feels great to be here permanently, especially after what happened here last year,” he added.

“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.”

 

The 25-year-old played 61 times in total for Sunderland since his move in 2010 but is now looking forward to retaining the clubs status in England’s top tier. The club will be looking to add more players this summer but will be wary of destroying the core that earned automatic promotion from the Championship last season.
