Man City considering Mido swoop
Mido
Mido has started only five Premiership games this season
Manchester City are interested in signing Tottenham striker Mido, BBC Sport understands.

Mido is Spurs' fourth-choice striker - behind Jermain Defoe, Robbie Keane and Dimitar Berbatov - and has started only five league games this season.

City boss Stuart Pearce is monitoring a handful of strikers who could possibly bolster his misfiring forward line.

Meanwhile, PSV Eindhoven left-back Michael Ball is having a week-long trial with City.

Ball, 27, came through the youth set-up at Everton and went on to earn an England cap in 2001.

The defender said: "This is a great opportunity for me to show the manager and staff here first-hand what I can do."

Reports have suggested Spurs would want a fee of about 3m for 23-year-old Egypt international Mido.

Mido joined Spurs from Roma on a permanent deal for an undisclosed fee this summer.

He had previously spent 18 months on loan at White Hart Lane.
