Hull City have completed the permanent signing of Egyptian winger Ahmed Elmohamady from Sunderland.
The 25-year-old enjoyed a season-long loan spell with Steve Bruce's side last term, which was briefly interrupted by a two-week recall to his then-parent club in January.
And, after helping the KC Stadium outfit to promotion from the Championship over the course of his 42 appearances in 2012-13, Elmohamady has now earned a three-year deal.
"It feels great to be here permanently, especially after what happened here last season," he told Hull's official website.
"It was a great year and I thoroughly enjoyed playing for this club. Everything about it was great – the players, the staff, the fans – and I am delighted to be here again.
"It’s going to be great to play in the Premier League again, especially with Hull City, and I am very much looking forward to the new season.
"Moving here was an easy decision to make. The fans are fantastic and it will be enjoyable to play in front of them in the Premier League."
Elmohamady was handed Hull's Player of the Year award for his performances last season.
The attacker has 43 caps for Egypt, and has scored two goals over the course of his six-year international career.
