SUNDERLAND winger Ahmed Elmohamady has completed his move to newly-promoted Hull City.

The Echo revealed yesterday that Sunderland were on the verge of further boosting their transfer kitty with the departure of Elmohamady after the £11million sale of goalkeeper Simon Mignolet to Liverpool.

Elmohamady has now finalised the details of his three-year deal with the Tigers for an undisclosed fee, which is thought to be £2m.

The Egyptian enjoyed a profitable loan spell at the KC Stadium last season, winning the club’s Player of the Year accolade after being reunited with former Sunderland boss Steve Bruce.

And after sealing promotion, Hull moved to activate the £2m clause in Elmohamady’s loan deal to convert the switch into a permanent one.

“The manager (Bruce) was the one who brought me over from Egypt to play for Sunderland and now he has brought me here,” said Elmohamady.

“I really enjoy playing for him and I look forward to doing so again now.”
