Egypt’s winger, Ahmed Elmohamady, could leave English Premier League's club Sunderland in the summer transfer window as head coach Martin O'Neill is keen to rebuild his squad, reports in English media revealed on Tuesday.
“Sunderland are preparing a summer clear-out to raise funds for Martin O'Neill's rebuilding plans. Kieran Richardson, Michael Turner, Titus Bramble, Craig Gordon, Matthew Kilgallon and Ahmed Elmohamady are all going to be made available,” said the Guardian today.
The Daily Mail also highlighted the matter saying: “Michael Turner, Titus Bramble, Craig Gordon, Matthew Kilgallon and Ahmed Elmohamady could all be sacrificed at the end of the campaign to bolster O'Neill's transfer kitty,”.
These reports appear despite the recent declarations by the Black Cats manager to back his shocked Egyptian player after football-related violence at his home land that stunned the whole world.
The 24-year-old winger earned a permanent stay with Sunderland last summer having initially joined the English club on a season-long loan in 2010, but he has fallen down the pecking order since O’Neill arrived three months ago.
