Sunderland move for Ahmed Al-Muhammadi stalls

Sunderland's loan move for Ahmed Al-Muhammadi has stalled.

The Sunday Sun says the Black Cats were expected to finally tie up a season-long loan deal for the pacy 22-year-old this weekend.

But it is understood that the move has stalled over the size of the loan fee being asked for by Al-Muhammadi's Egyptian club, ENPPI.

Sunderland have a long-term interest in the right-sided youngster, who is happy playing at full-back or as a winger and spent a spell on trial at the Stadium of Light in January.

And, after several false starts, a firm move for Al-Muhammadi was finally in the offing this week, with the player flying to Wearside for a medical.

But the word from Al-Muhammadi's agent is that ENPPI are unhappy with the financial terms on offer from Sunderland.
