Newcastle Linked With Yet Another International Winger

It’s very difficult in transfer windows to know what’s true that’s reported and what’s simply made up.

There has been news for a couple of months that Newcastle may be interested in Hull City winger Ahmed Elmohamady, who played at Sunderland with Steve Bruce and seemed to follow him to Hull City – he has one year left on his contract at The Tigers.

Ahmed Elmohamady – are Newcastle really interested?

With Hull having been relegated last season it could be that Elmohamady may want to stay in the Premier League and West Brom, Watford, Stoke City are sai to be interested along with Benfica and Sevilla.

The 69 times capped Egyptian International Elmohamady was part of the Egyptian squads that won both the 2008 and 2010 African Cup of Nations.

The price for the Egyptian is low at just £3M, but we wonder if Newcastle are really interested in getting this player?

In three season at Hull City he played almost every game – making 129 appearances with 9 goals and last season he started every league game for Hull.

Steve Bruce will want to get Hull straight back up o the Premier League and Elmohamady would certainly help Hull do that.

Steve Bruce has already lost first team players McShane, Rosenior, Quinn, Chester and Brady, and he will not want to lose the 27 year-old Egyptian.

In his career at Ghazl El Mahalla, ENPPI, Sunderland and Hull, Ahmed Elmohamady has played 279 games with 25 goals and 35 assists.

But we’d be very surprised if Newcastle are rally interested in getting this player.

What do you think?
