Hull City target Gedo on loan

Published Add your comment

Hull City AFC have made a loan approach to re-sign former striker Gedo from Al-Ahly. 

Gedo, who joined on transfer deadline day in January 2013 on loan, hit the ground running almost immediately and scored within two minutes of coming on in his home debut. 

Gedo then went on a marvellous scoring run and scored five goals in just four home appearances. However, Gedo failed to hit the net once playing away from the KC Stadium.

The Egyptian striker had been training with the club through pre-season after he picked up an injury at the end of last term. The club has a link with Al-Ahly that allows the Egyptian team to send over injured players to use our facilities to recuperate and rehabilitate. 

Manager Steve Bruce had set out his intentions to bring in a striker but the news of an approach for Gedo has been met with mixed reaction from the Tiger nation. Gedo tailed off towards the end of his initial spell at the club due to a foot injury, and played with the injury for a number of games.

Due to the disbandment of the Egyptian Premier League, Gedo hadn't played regular competitive football when he arrived which meant for much of his spell at Hull he wasn't match fit.

Gedo is likely to be an impact player to come off the bench, and his move could see the end of Nick Proschwitz and Matty Fryatt.

Neither have made the bench yet in the league and after a poor performance in last week's Capital One Cup victory at Leyton Orient, you can expect at least one of them to leave the club by deadline day.
