Hull winger Ahmed Elmohamady has signed a new three-year deal with the newly-promoted Premier League club, subject to a renewed work permit.

The Egypt international, 28, linked with a host of top-flight clubs at the end of last season, was out of contract this summer but will now embark on his fifth season at the KC Stadium back in the top flight after the Tigers’ play-off final victory in May.

“I’m delighted and pleased to be here for another three years,” Elmohamady told the club’s official website.

“I’ve been here for four years now and it has been a great four years. My mind is now on the next three years with this club and the fans, and the big challenge ahead.

“We’re back in the Premier League now and we can’t wait to get started again.”

Elmohamady has made over 180 appearances for Hull since arriving, initially on loan, from Sunderland in August 2012.

Hull paid Sunderland £2million to make the move permanent in June 2013 and Elmohamady has gone on to twice win promotion to the Premier League with the Tigers.
