Hull City's Egyptian winger Ahmed Elmohamady is on the verge of joining Championship side Aston Villa, Hull Daily Mail reported on Monday. 

The 29-year-old left the team's training camp in Portugal on Monday to undergo a medical test at Aston Villa. 

Villa's coach Steve Bruce, who was a former coach of Hull City, showed interest in the Egyptian winger, who gave many fine displays under his guidance at Hull City.

Elmohamady was a regular starter in Hull City's squad last season, but he failed to help his side remain in the Premier League, as they finished 18th on the league table. 

The former ENPPI winger joined Hull City in 2013 from Sunderland, making 218 appearances that included the 2014 FA Cup defeat to Arsenal.

Elmohamady, who has 73 caps, was a member of the Pharaohs' squad that lost the Nations Cup final to Cameroon in February.
