Don't worry, although he is being linked with a move back to the UK, it is not to West Ham but to Barnsley - no doubt to the envy of local rivals Leeds United. Apparently he has developed a taste for Yorkshire Pudding, rhubarb crumble and has identified a great kebab shop in the town. Presumably he is asking for his standard grand a week, which may mean he is beyond the resources of Leeds whilst keeping him within range of little old Barnsley.
Anyway, it's great to know that the flying Egyptian is heading back to England and will soon be bombing down the flanks with his old alacrity. Sadly West Ham fans will not get to see him play, as we are now in the Premiership, but the good folk of Yorkshire, be it Barnsley or Leeds fans, will no doubt take the Rolls Royce driving lard arse to their hearts, happy to be forking out their hard earned pound notes to finance the demiretirement of a guy who is reputedly still only 29, although he looks 40, and who has been released on a free transfer by his Egyptian club!
So we get Vaz Te and Barnsley, if they can beat Leeds to the signing, get Mido instead. That's the way the rhubarb crumbles!
