Gedo begins fitness training at Hull City

Posted on September 19, 2013

Gedo - Hull City

Gedo has began working towards match fitness with after finally linking up with his team-mates on Wednesday.

The 28-year-old Egypt international, who re-joined the Tigers on a season-long loan from Al-Ahly on transfer deadline day, returned to the UK on Tuesday after finally being granted a visa and began training to regain match fitness at Ferriby on Wednesday evening.

Gedo’s last match was against Bristol City on April 19th as the striker was sidelined for three months after aggravating an old foot injury which eventually required surgery.

“Knowing that Gedo is on his way to us at last is a huge boost,” Bruce admitted after the Egyptian was granted international clearance.

“The delay in getting him here has been so frustrating, and there was a time when I genuinely feared we wouldn’t be seeing him until Christmas.

“But he has tried so hard to get everything in order, and now that determination has paid off and he will be with us by the end of the week.

“Mind you, we might have to wait a little longer before we can see him out there on the pitch because he is a bit short of fitness after being sidelined with an ankle injury.

“But we know, from having him here last season, that he has got goals in him and that he is a class finisher. I believe he has the quality to be a regular scorer in the Premier League.”

Gedo did not feature for the reserves in their 4-0 win against Rotherham United Reserves on Wednesday night, which means he’s highly unlikely to play any part against Newcastle United this Saturday.

Nick Proschwitz, however, gave Steve Bruce food for thought after the German striker scored all four goals in the Hull City Reserves’ win at North Ferriby.

Meanwhile Ivorian striker Sagbo will be available again for the Tigers’ selection against Newcastle after serving a three-match ban following his red card against Norwich City last month.

Gedo, who was also on loan at the KC Stadium last season, hit five goals in his first five starts for Hull before the goals dried up in the remainder of his appearances (a combined total of 12) to boost the Tigers’ promotion drive.
