Ahmed Elmohamady: Hull City fans' player of the year

The Egypt international, 25, who received his trophy at the club's end-of-season awards dinner on Sunday night, now wants to round off a successful first season at the KC Stadium by securing promotion.

"It has been a big season here," said wing-back Elmohamady, who initially joined Hull on loan from parent club Sunderland in August before extending his stay until the end of the season in January.

He added on the club's official website: "I have to say thank you to my team-mates for helping me to win the award at the weekend and of course to the fans of Hull City for the support they have given me.

"I just hope that we can go on and get promoted at the weekend now."

Bruce was manager of Sunderland when the Black Cats signed Elmohamady from Egyptian side ENPPI in July 2010.

"It was a big decision for me to come here," Elmohamady said.

"But I have to thank the manager for bringing me here. He was also the one that brought me over from Egypt to play in England.

"The manager also brought Gedo and Fathi here and they have been fantastic for us. It's great to see Egyptian players in the English league."

Tigers midfielder Stephen Quinn, in his first season at Hull after signing from Sheffield United in the summer, was named the club's players' player of the year.
