Mido seals Boro move

Egyptian international Mido completed his transfer from Tottenham to Middlesbrough on Thursday, signing a four-year contract at the Riverside.
Boro paid Spurs six million pounds (11.9 million dollars, 8.9 million euros) for the striker.
Mido found himself squeezed out at White Hart Lane by Tottenham's wealth of strikers, finding his opportunities limited by the presence of Bulgaria's Dimitar Berbatov, Ireland's Robbie Keane and England's Jermain Defoe and Darren Bent.
Middlesbrough manager Gareth Southgate reckons England winger Stewart Downing's crosses will be perfect for the tall Egyptian.
"He is someone I played against as a player and he always impressed me," said Southgate, the former England defender-cum-midfielder.
"He gave me a hard game and he certainly has attributes I'd like to bring to the team and give us different options.
"When you've got one of the best crossers in the league in Stewart Downing, you want someone like Mido who can head the ball."
