Mido Claims Blues Deal

Last updated : 17 July 2007 By Brian Cartlidge
The 24-year-old Egyptian international has said that he is to sign for Blues on an initial season-long loan deal, which will become permanent, if Blues survive in the Premier League this season.

"Both sides have agreed terms," Mido told FilGoal.com.

"I will move on a one-year loan deal to Birmingham worth £1million and at the end they could buy my contract for £5million, if the club survives in the Premier League.

"Birmingham's offer is the best I had received, especially that I chose to stay in England."
