Midfielder contemplates summer move
Sunderland midfielder Ahmed Elmohamady is considering his future at the club, after struggling to make an impact under Martin O'Neill.
The Egypt international was a regular starter under Steve Bruce but, since the arrival of O'Neill, he has found himself frozen out of the first team in recent months and has only featured for 35 minutes. The 24-year-old wants to be a regular and, just a year after arriving on Wearside on a full time basis for £2.5m, looks likely to be on his way during the summer. Elmohamady told the Sunderland Echo: "I spoke with O'Neill before I joined Egypt's training camp in the UAE and he promised to give me chances to play in the remaining league games. Things will be clearer afterwards regarding my future with the team." He added: "I'm considering leaving the club, but I haven't taken a final decision yet. Maybe I can win a place in the team before the end of the season. "If the situation continues as it is now I will leave because I am looking to play and not sit on the bench because it would have a negative impact on my game."
