Middlesbrough enter race for Mido

Mido has struggled for opportunities at Spurs
Middlesbrough have joined the chase to sign Tottenham striker Mido.

Boro have matched the 6m offers from Birmingham and Sunderland for the 24-year-old Mido and have been given permission to speak to him by Spurs.

Boro boss Gareth Southgate said: "Yes we have made our interest in Mido known to Spurs. We're awaiting developments."

The Egyptian striker is surplus to requirements at White Hart Lane following the arrival of Darren Bent from Charlton Athletic.

Birmingham are trying to revive a deal for Mido, which collapsed two weeks ago, while Sunderland are also courting the Egyptian forward.

Blues boss Steve Bruce said: "It was all sorts of things like length of contract, stipulations in the contract.

"Those seem to have been ironed out so, if talks are ongoing again, then great. We made the best offer we can to the player. We'll see what happens."

Bruce added: "It'll be a permanent transfer if it happens. That's where it got clouded initially.

"We were thinking we were going to get a loan deal for a year but it became obvious Tottenham didn't want that.

"They wanted a permanent deal which we are trying to resurrect."

Mido will be Birmingham boss Steve Bruce's biggest buy of the summer so far if the deal goes through.
