Injury ends Zaki’s Tigers spell

Egypt striker Amr Zaki's loan spell with Hull City has been cut short due to a knee injury which has forced him to return home to Zamalek.

The 27-year-old failed to score during six appearances for the Tigers, having been drafted in in January to try and help City avoid relegation form the Premier League.

Zaki's agent, Nader Shawki, told FilGoal:"Hull coach Iain Dowie officially informed Zaki that his loan deal had come to an end.

"Zaki will return to Cairo on Sunday to join up with Zamalek.

"Zaki needs ten more days to complete his recovery, so it would be very difficult for Dowie to rely on him during the remaining games of the season, because he will not be fully fit."

Zaki had previously played in England with Wigan Athletic during the 2008-09 season, scoring 11 goals in 32 appearances.
