Elmo Move In The Summer From Bruce

Elmo Move In The Summer From Bruce

Ahmed Elmohamady has been thrown in at the deep end by Steve Bruce as he continues to learn the English language and culture but his football career seems to be heading towards a permanent move to Wearside.

Elmo, who is still very raw, has impressed Bruce in his debut season in the Premiership and he would like to seal a deal in the summer for him.

Bruce said: 'Ahmed is a little raw, but he will get a lot sharper with experience, when he comes back next season it would not surprise me if he has come on again.

'We will look to get the deal done at the right time, he is tied down to us contractually so there is no-one else who can take him off us.

'We are very happy with the way he has played and we are happy to have him on board.'

'I did not expect him to make the impact he had because he was still so young when we brought him over.

'He already has 22 caps for his country and he is still only in his early 20s, so you know he has to have something.

'People look down a little on Egypt and I never know why - in the Fifa rankings last year they were ranked ninth in the world.

'Sometimes you have to cut people a little slack and consider what they have to cope with. Ahmed has come over here to a completely different culture and way of life.

'It is his first season in the Premier League and, although he has played right-wing previously, he has spent far more time in that position than he ever has done before.'
