English first division league side Hull City have contacted Sudanese club Merriekh asking to have their Egyptian goalkeeper Essam El-Hadary on a week trail.

“We would like to invite your player Essam El-Hadary join Hull City AFC, to train with the squad and to perform medical tests with a view to a possible transfer,” Hull city said to the Sudanese side in a Fax published on the player’s official website.

“The invitation will start from Wednesday 24 August until after training on Monday 29 August,” read the letter.

The newly-relegated club from the Premier League didn't expose if they would buy the player or take him on loan after the trial but they ensured that he will be insured against permanent disability in the sum of 250,000 British pounds.

The veteran keeper, 38, joined El-Merreikh last January after ending a brief and unsuccessful spell with Zamalek but failed to settle in and he is still determined to have another spell in European football, having played for Swiss side Sion after leaving Ahly.
