Egyptian winger Ahmed Elmohamady has been a sensation since signing on loan in the summer from ENPPI, and Steve Bruce is set to action the clause in the contract which Sunderland can sign the 23 year old for the already agreed fee that is thought to be 2 million pounds. 

Elmohamady once nick-named the Egyptian Beckham has produced some fantastic performances in the 7 games he has played for the Black Cats, so much so that it is said to have alerted the likes of Chelsea and Manchester United. 

But the winger and Bruce are set to end media rumors by putting pen to paper, Steve Bruce said “The fee is agreed between the clubs and we’re possibly looking to do it in January. We would love to make that permanent, he’s a gem.”
