Everton & Aston Villa leading January chase for experienced wide-man

Everton and Aston Villa are both eyeing moves for Hull City wide-man Ahmed Elmohamady, according to reports from the Daily Mirror.

The Egypt international was a part of the Tigers side that slipped to relegation last term, and despite his Premier League experience no top tier club prised him away from the KC Stadium during the last window.

However, reports claim that a January move for the African ace may be on the cards, with Villa and Everton both looking to lure him from Humberside.

Although Hull chief Steve Bruce is keen to keep Elmohamady as he plots to secure immediate promotion, the club are aware that he could leave for free next summer when his contract expires, making a sale in early 2016 appealing.

As well as Everton and Villa, Swansea and Leicester are also interested in the versatile wide player, who can play as a right-back or a right-sided winger.

A source close to the player has confirmed that interest is genuine with the player eager to stay in English football:

”The player is expected to leave Hull in January.

“Several offers have been received from Premier League clubs who are interested in Ahmed because of his experience, and he prefers to continue his English journey.”
