English Premier League newcomers Hull City will not extend the loan deal of Egyptian winger Ahmed Fathi.

Fathi, who joined Hull from Cairo giants Ahly on a short-term loan deal in January, made few appearances for the northern club that finished second in the Championship.

"Ahmed Fathi is unlikely to return to Hull," Hull Daily Mail reported on Monday.

"Despite a cameo performance in the Tigers' run-in, Hull City haven't shown a huge desire to keep the talented Egyptian at the KC," the report added.

The 28-year-old right back was part of the Egypt team that defeated Zimbabwe 4-2 in a 2014 World Cup qualifier on Sunday.

"His agent has now told the Egyptian media that he is in talks with an unnamed Turkish club about signing the right back," The Hull Daily Mail concluded.
