Egypt striker Mohamed "Gedo"Nagy will rejoin home club Ahly within two weeks, after undergoing foot surgery Monday at a hospital in England, the Cairo giants announced.

"Gedo will return to Cairo after two weeks following a successful foot operation," Ahly said in a statement on its official website on Tuesday.

"The player departed the hospital in England and will start a rehabilitation programme until leaving for Egypt," the statement added.

The 28-year-old striker, who injured his foot due to fatigue, has just ended his loan at newly-promoted English Premier League side Hull City.

Gedo, who made an instant impact after joining Hull on a six-month loan deal in January, scored five Championship (second division) goals in 12 appearances to play a key role in helping the Tigers seal Premier League promotion. Following the surgery, he will be sidelined for up to four months.

Best known for scoring five goals to help Egypt win the 2010 African Cup of Nations, Gedo will miss the Pharaohs' World Cup qualifying games against Zimbabwe and Mozambique next month.
