Gedo’s chances have been ‘blocked’ at Hull – Bruce

Gedo - Hull

head coach  explains that Egyptian striker Gedo’s chances have been blocked as he faces tough competition from the current in-form Tigers forwards.

29-year-old Mohamed ‘Gedo’ Nagy may no longer be in the Tigers plans, who he joined last summer on a one-year loan deal from Al Ahly, as he continues to struggle to break into the first team.

Gedo’s chances have been limited, which Hull City boss Steve Bruce acknowledged: “It’s been a frustrating time for Gedo because with Robert Koren, Danny Graham and Yannick Sagbo doing well, he’s had his way blocked.”

Bruce added: “It’s also the first time I’ve seen Matty Fryatt for what he is. He’s got himself back fit and he got the nod at the weekend. We have to be fair with him. If he’s not going to play we’ll do the right thing.”

Al Ahly have sent a letter to Hull City inquiring about on loan striker Gedo, essentially requesting to have his loan cut short.

The Cairo giants are expecting a response by 10 January, but following Steve Bruce’s latest comments it seems likely he’s willing to allow the Egyptian striker to return home.

Gedo hit five goals in his first five starts while on loan at the KC Stadium last season to help the Tigers achieve promotion to the Premier League.

Hull City remain interested in Gedo’s Al Ahly teammate Rami Rabia –  who Steve Bruce says is “One for the future” – but Al Ahly have rejected Hull City’s first approach.
