Swansea & Leicester Keeping an Eye on Hull Defender?


Premier League rivals Swansea City and Leicester City are both reportedly keeping an eye on Hull City’s Egyptian full-back Ahmed Elmohamady, according to reports.

ELElmohamady arrived at the KC Stadium from Sunderland in 2013 and he has since gone onto feature in over 100 league games for the Tigers. However, due to the Humberside club’s relegation to the Championship last season, the 27-year-old is reportedly ready to consider offers elsewhere in January.

Ahmed Elmohamady has been heavily linked with a move back to Egyptian football, with Cairo giants Al Ahly keen on taking him back to his native homeland. Premier League duo Swansea and Leicester City are also rumoured to be interested in the versatile defender.

The Hull star, who cost the Championship club £2m back in 2013, is predominantly a full-back, although he can play in a wide midfield role, also.

Ahmed Elmohamady played 41 times for the Tigers during their promotion campaign in 2013, he was also a regular in Steve Bruce’s side whilst in the Premier League.

Although there is nothing concrete in Swansea’s alleged interest in the Hull man, Elmohamady would be a useful squad player and would provide stiff competition to Kyle Naughton and Angel Rangel.

Garry Monk’s Swans are back in Premier League action at Watford next Saturday, following this round of international fixtures.
