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.

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
