Egyptian champions Ahly have not received an offer from English Championship side Hull City for their star midfielder Mohamed Abou-Treika, according to a club official.

“All the reports about Hull City trying to land Abou-Treika are false. The club hasn’t contacted us about the player at all,” the Reds football sector director Hadi Khashaba told the club’s official website.

The denial came in response to local reports linking Abou-Treika with a move to Hull after officials from both clubs met in Cairo.

“Ahly chairman Hassan Hamdy met Hull City’s Essam Allam to sign a cooperation deal between the two sides regarding giving opportunities to our young players,” Khashaba added.

Last week, Ahly banned the veteran playmaker for two months and fined him LE500,000 ($85,000) for skipping the team's Super Cup game against ENPPI, which they won 2-1 courtesy of a stoppage-time goal from forward Mohamed Nagy "Gedo."

Abou-Treika took the side of Ahly’s supporters who protested against resuming domestic football competitions before ‘justice happened’ to the +70 fans who died in Port Said stadium after clashes with rivals’ fans.
