Gedo: I want to stay at Hull City and get back in goals
By Shafy Mosaad in Cairo
HULL City’s Egyptian star Gedo says he is desperate to pick up where he left off at the KC Stadium and get back on the goal trail against Birmingham on Saturday.
The 26-year-old made the perfect start to life at the Tigers with three goals in his first three home appearances.
Now, he says he’s settled into life in England, and is already planning to stay next season, hopefully having helped fire the Tigers into the Premier League.

“I desperately need to score on Saturday and return the club on the right path,” he told Egyptian journalists when speaking about his City experience so far.
“I want to delight the Tigers fans who have supported me since I came to England. I am having a great life here and I want to continue my career in England and hope not to go back to Egypt now.”
Gedo tasted defeat for the first time in the disappointing 4-1 loss at Bolton last weekend, and he admits it was frustrating to see his run of goals come to an end.
He said: “I honestly felt very sad because I was unable to help against Bolton. Our fans couldn’t believe what was unfolding. It was a nightmare.
“We must all put in an extra effort to forget this defeat. I have a big need to score in the next match and I will do my best to help the Tigers achieve their Premier League dream.”
City will be the only side able to sign Gedo and team-mate Ahmed Fathi for 12 months after this season under an agreement with parent club Al Ahly, if they are willing to sell.
