Zaki loan cut short by Tigers

Hull boss Iain Dowie has brought Amr Zaki's loan spell to a premature end due to the knee injury suffered by the striker. Zaki made just six appearances for the Tigers after joining on loan from Zamalek in January, failing to score a single goal. And, after the 27-year-old suffered a knee injury, Dowie decided to send the Egyptian home. "Hull coach Iain Dowie officially informed Zaki that his loan deal came to an end," Zaki's agent Nader Shawki told FilGoal. "Zaki will return to Cairo on Sunday to join up with Zamalek. "Zaki needs 10 more days to complete his recovery, so it would be very difficult for Dowie to rely on him during the remaining games of the season because he will not be fully fit."
