Gedo underwent surgery last Monday at a hospital in England and will rejoin home club Ahly within the next week.
"Gedo will return to Cairo after two weeks following a successful foot operation," Ahly said in a statement on its official website. "The player departed the hospital in England and will start a rehabilitation programme until leaving for Egypt," the statement added.
Gedo had been on loan at the English Premier League newly-promoted side Hull City and made an instant impact upon his arrival. The 28 year old joined the Hulls on a six month loan last January and scored five Championship goals in 12 appearances, playing a key role in helping the Tigers secure Premier League promotion. He missed the game against Cardiff City, which lifted the Hulls to the elite competition. It is unknown if Hull coach Steve Bruce will sign Gedo on a permanent basis following his surgery.
Gedo is best known for scoring five goals to help Egypt win the 2010 African Cup of Nations. He will miss the Pharaoh's World Cup qualifying games against Zimbabwe and Mozambique.
