The latest in a long line of pulse-quickening Bruce signings.  Look forward to Bruce going on about him having "that little bit of quality we've been missing."

Cant wait till the day we unveil John O'Shea and Wes Brown.

People were ok when Crouch was being mentioned. Expect soon a billion pound bid for Connor Wickham.

I never thought I'd hear myself saying 'can we not sign any more players.'

One the plus side we are definitely not trying the "young and hungry" approach again.

I know it's only likely to be a short term fix but we could do worse than bring in Didier Agathe as cover at Right Back.

Apart from when Bruce signed Johnstone, Bree and Bedeau, you mean?

Ahmed Elmohamady is quite injury prone us he not ? Think there may be trouble with his medical due to a long standing  back injury.
The guy often has to see a  cairo- practor.
Outrageous really as Bruce is majorly in de -nile if Elmo suited to anything more that the pyramid formation .
Unbelievable!

He is only 29 and has played in a team that's been promoted from this league two or three times I think? Not one to get excited about but not one to moan about either

From some Hull journo:

The time feels right for that. The last two years of Elmohamady’s City career have not done the previous three justice.

The spark that made him such a devastating right wing-back has fizzled out and the consistency that was once a hallmark has ebbed away.

Hull City's Ahmed Elmohamady (front right) passes back to goalkeeper Allan McGregor. Referee Neil Swarbrick awards a free kick which leads to a goal for West Bromwich Albion's Saido Berahino

Two years ago, as City fans were mourning relegation, the prospect of losing Elmohamady was harrowing. Now there is an acceptance that these “negotiations” over a sale are for the best.

The last 12 months have given a jaundiced view to Elmohamady’s City career. Too many games spent toiling up against the Premier League’s best left wingers have dimmed memories of all those swashbuckling displays between 2012 and 2014.

Elmohamady was magnificent in his first season at the KCOM Stadium. Signed on loan from Sunderland, first in August and then again in January, he was the club’s Player of the Season on the way to promotion out of the Championship.

Last season, his fifth with the Tigers, hastened the sense of personal decline for Elmohamady. Dropping deeper to fill a void at right-back, he was rarely comfortable and often exposed.

That drive and vigour, not to mention the precise crossing, was seldom replicated before his form met supporters’ frustrations in the Sunderland defeat.
