Official: Sunderland recalls Elmohamady – but for how long?

Posted on January 16, 2013

Martin O’Neill has opted to recall Egypt right wing-back from his loan spell at .

Elmohamady had been enjoying an impressive campaign with Hull, who are currently second in the npower Championship.

The 25-year-old made 23 appearances for the club since joining the Tigers in September 2012, scoring once while dishing out six assists.

Is this the last the Tigers see of Elmo?

Shortly after being loaned to Hull, in a TV interview with Zamalek legend Hazem Emam, Elmohamady said: “God help me with them (Hull) this year so that they’ll play in the Premier League next season; because there is an option in my contract, if Hull are promoted to the Premier League, they have the option to buy me from .”

O’Neill’s decision is likely due to a shortage of players, with defensive trio Carlos Cuellar, Wes Brown and Phil Bardsley all on the sidelines with injuries.

According to the Hull Daily Mail, the Northern Irish tactician said earlier in the month: “It might be that if we have been unable to add the players I was hoping to add in this window, then we might have to recall Elmohamady.”

He has played one game for Sunderland this season – appearing as a substitute during the 0-0 draw at Arsenal on the opening day of the campaign.

‘Elmo’ should be available for selection this weekend as Sunderland travel to Wigan; the Black Cats currently lie in 14th.
