Hull City have continued their summer business with the news that Sunderland winger Ahmed Elmohamady has signed a three-year deal with the club.
The 25-year-old right-sided player has completed a permanent move to the KC Stadium having impressed at Hull last season after joining the Tigers last August on a season-long loan.
Elmohamady, who was brought to Sunderland in 2010 by Hull City manager Steve Bruce, made 41 appearances, scoring three goals, as the club won promotion back to the Barclays Premier League and was voted the club's Player of the Year by the fans.
"Moving here was an easy decision to make"
"It feels great to be here permanently, especially after what happened here last season," Elmohamady told the club's 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."
The Eqypt international is the fourth signing made by Bruce this summer following the transfers of George Boyd, Maynor Figueroa and Curtis Davies while Liam Rosenior and James Chester have both signed new contracts.
