The 33-year-old right-back has bid goodbye to Aston Villa after four years at the club with his contract expiring this summer.

 

He will be moving on a free transfer and was only a bit-part player this season, making 14 appearances in the Premier League.

 

 

Elmohamady has written a farewell letter to Aston Villa and their fans and insisted that it was an honour for him to be part of the club.

 

The defender is happy that he managed to play a part in getting the Villans promoted back to the Premier League and believes they are good enough to push on in the coming years.

 

 

He is hopeful that the Villa fans will be back at the stadium and claimed that the club have kept the door open for him to return as a coach in the future.

 

He posted a note on Twitter and wrote: “I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to everyone involved with Aston Villa Football Club, it was an honour to have played there.

 

 

“I’ve had four great years and have enjoyed the highs and lows. I am leaving knowing that I played my part in putting the club back where it belongs.

 

“The squad here is awesome and I know it will only get better with the vision and guidance of the owners.

 

“A big thank you to the manager, coaching staff and all at Bodymoor Heath.

 

“But a special thank you, to you the supporters. You’ve been massively missed this season through the pandemic but will be hopefully back next season to cheer the lads on.

 

“I have been given the opportunity to maybe come back here in coaching capacity one day, but that’s for another day.

 

“But until then, UTV!!!”

 

Elmohamady made 129 appearances over his four seasons at Aston Villa.
