The club is delighted to announce that it has agreed terms with Roma and Mido for the highly-rated striker to join us on an 18-month loan, with striker Mounir El Hamdaoui also joining on a three-and-a-half year contract from Excelsior Rotterdam.
Both deals are subject to the completion of formalities over the next couple of days. Mido - full name, Ahmed Hossam - enjoyed a successful stint at Ajax before spells at Celta Vigo and Marseille.
El Hamdaoui formerly represented Holland at Under-21 level and recently pledged his international future to Morocco.
Please see the website tomorrow for more information on these players and comment from Sporting Director Frank Arnesen and Head Coach Martin Jol.
