Zaki set for Premier League return

CAIRO - Egypt striker Amr Zaki is to undergo a medical at an English team on Saturday, his club Zamalek said on their website on Friday.

The Egyptian side did not disclose the identity of the English club but local media said Zaki would be joining Premier League strugglers Hull City on loan until the end of the season.

Zaki, who missed the African Nations Cup due to injury, was recently fined by Zamalek because he failed to turn up for training for 12 days without permission.

The striker was on loan at English Premier League Wigan Athletic last season.

Hull were not immediately available for comment.
