Championship side Aston Villa have reportedly activated Egypt international Ahmed Elmohamady’s release clause, according to Sky Sports.

The 29-year-old could soon reunite with former manager Steve Bruce, who signed him for Sunderland and Hull City in 2010 and 2012 respectively.

Elmohamady has left Hull City’s pre-season tour in Portugal to seal a £1m move to Aston Villa, who are keen to sign the defender as they hope to return back to the English Premier League.

The former ENPPI player is expected to undergo a medical at Villa Park in the next 24 hours, becoming the sixth player to leave the Tigers since their relegation last May.

Bruce seems to have developed a liking for Egyptian players, having previously worked with Ahmed Hossam ‘Mido’, Amr Zaki, Hossam Ghaly, Ahmed Nagy ‘Gedo’ and Ahmed Fathi. This would be the third club the former Manchester United centre-back has signed Elmohamady for, having already brought him from ENPPI to Sunderland, and Sunderland to Hull City.

Ahmed has joined the Tigers in August 2012 from Sunderland, making 217 for them across all competitions and scoring 11 goals. He was part of the squad that reached the FA Cup final in 2014, when they lost to Arsenal 3-2.
