Elmohamady wants to stay at Hull City
The former Sunderland player has recently helped Hull City secure immediate promotion to the Premier League after beating Sheffield Wednesday in the play-off final, claiming the third and final promotion ticket.
“I want to stay, of course,” said Elmohamady. “Why not? I have been here for four years and really enjoyed it. It’s a good club with good fans and good players. It’s been the best four years for me as a player and the club has done well. I hope we can get everything sorted,” said Elmohamady, according to the Hull Daily Mail.
During the 2016 winter transfer window, Elmohamady decided to remain at Hull despite receiving offers from English Premier League clubs Everton and West Bromwich Albion.
Hull City’s coach Steve Bruce said in January that talks have begun with the 28-year-old player to sign a new long-term contract with the Tigers, as his contract expires this summer.
“We were talking around January about a contract and then the manager was talking to me after that, but we decided to leave everything until after the final. We will start talking again soon and hopefully get everything sorted,” the Egyptian winger added.
Elmohamady praised Bruce, who used to coach him at Sunderland as well, and voiced his support for his continuation at the helm of the team.
“He’s a very experienced manager, over 800 games, so he knows what he is doing,” he said. “He’s got the club promoted before and he’s got the club promoted again. He’s experienced on the big stage like Wembley and the Premier League so hopefully he will stay.
“I think he’s the best man for the club. He knows this club inside and out. He’s the best person to manage the club at the moment. All the players like him.
Elmohamady joined the club initially on loan from Sunderland in 2012 before making the move permanent the following year. He was part of Hull’s squad who helped the club get promoted to the Premier League in 2013, before they were relegated after the 2014-15 season, but managed to climb back at the first time of asking.
“It’s unbelievable. This promotion feels better. It has been such a long season for us all but we’ve got the job done and we’re back in the Premier League.
“It’s not easy to go straight back up. You need big players and we showed we’ve got them. It’s an amazing feeling,” he concluded.
