UPDATED: Hull interested in Ahly duo Gedo and Fathi
“Hull City offered a six-month loan deal for Gedo and Fathi, through one of their agents. The board is yet to hold a meeting to discuss the issue and take its final decision,” the head of Ahly’s football department Hady Khashaba said on the club’s website on Saturday.
“The Football committee will meet in the next few days to finalise all these issues and notify the board,” he concluded.
On Sunday, Al-Ahly’s football director Sayed Abdel-Hafiz revealed the club have received an official fax from Hull, requesting to loan the Ahly duo this winter.
The Egypt duo should need no introduction as Gedo was the top scorer at the 2010 African Cup of Nations, while right-back Ahmed Fathi, 28, has been named in the CAF Team of the Year after Al-Ahly won the 2012 CAF Champions League.
Ahmed Fathi, who claims to also have an offer from Belgian side Club Brugge, previously played in the English Premier League in 2007, making only three appearances with Sheffield United before being sold to Al-Ahly.
Fathi told YallaKora on Sunday, “A return to England would be good, especially with Hull City, who are in a good situation and fighting to achieve promotion to the Premier League.”
28-year-old Egypt striker Gedo has an impressive record of 17 goals in 31 international outings, having re-discovered his form in 2012 under national team coach Bob Bradley.
It should be noted that Steve Bruce has signed the most Egyptians in England, having brought Amr Zaki and Mido to Wigan, and Ahmed Elmohamady to Sunderland and Hull City.
Elmohamady was recalled to the Black Cats from Hull City last Wednesday.
