Al Ahly request Hull to cut Gedo loan short
Al Ahly have sent a letter to Hull City inquiring about on loan striker Gedo, who they hope will return to the club in January.
29-year-old Mohamed Nagy ‘Gedo’, who is on loan to English Premier League side Hull City, may return to his parent club Al Ahly in January, according to the club’s football committee head Hady Khashaba.
The Cairo giants have sent a letter to Hull, who they hope will cut the Gedo loan short as their striker has continuously been left on the sidelines since recovering from an ankle injury, and they are expecting a decision by 10 January.
“Hull City sent a letter informing us that they will announce their decision on Gedo’s situation on 10 January,” Khashaba told reporters after Sunday’s training session.
“Hull City has the right to terminate Gedo’s loan deal and allow him return to Ahly, so we are waiting for their decision.” he concluded.
Al Ahly are currently suffering on the frontline ahead of the new Egyptian Premier League season – which kicks off this week – and the club failed to convince talisman playmaker Mohamed Abou-Treika not to retire, while they recently suspended striker Ahmed Abdel-Zaher for a ‘political’ gesture made in the Champions League final.
The Egyptian international, who has regularly featured for Hull City Reserves after recovering from injury, made his English Premier League debut against Crystal Palace last month but hasn’t featured since he came on as a second-half substitute against Arsenal.
Gedo, who re-joined Hull from Cairo giants Al-Ahly on transfer deadline day, hit five goals in his first five starts while on loan at the KC Stadium last season to boost the Tigers’ promotion drive.
It is worth noting that yesterday Al Ahly rejected Hull City’s approach for Rami Rabia, who Steve Bruce says is “One for the future.”
