Report: Hull to offer Ahmed Elmohamady new contract to ward off Premier League interest

Elmohamady has been linked with a summer move to Everton or Newcastle.

As reported by the Hull Daily Mail, Ahmed Elmohamady is set to open contract talks with the Tigers in an effort to ward off transfer interest from the Premier League.

The talented wing-back has consistently put in top performances for Hull, and despite their relegation from the top flight, he was one of few bright sparks in their 2014/15 season.

Considering his impressive form, and Hull’s drop to the Championship, the 27-year-old was always going to be in demand. According to the Mirror, Steve Bruce placed a £10 million asking price on his head last month, amid links to Everton and Newcastle.

His value to Hull is evident, having ended last season with 94 consecutive appearances to his name for the Yorkshire-based club, and the latest report claims the club will open contract talks with Elmohamady in an attempt to ward off this interest once again.

His current deal has now reached its final year, and he has been told that new terms will be offered to improve his status amongst the Hull team, in an effort to keep him in the Championship.

There are no indications that Elmohamady is ready to sign the deal, although he has yet to push for a move away from the KC Stadium. If terms are agreed this summer to extend his contract past the end of next season, it will surely rule out any chance of the wide-man leaving to the Premier League this summer.
