Mido Showdown With Southgate?

Last updated : 11 January 2009 By Boro Mad
The Middlesbrough striker has become frustrated with life on Teesside, just as he has wherever he has been.

Well travelled, and not a player to stick around for long, he is looking for a transfer this January window.

Where to? I don't think he's that bothered.

Wigan Athletic are said to be interested, but only if Emile Heskey moves on.

Mido (quoted on an Arab website): "I'm very angry no-one informed me of the talks before today, and I made sure manager Gareth Southgate knows how I feel.

"I was told that Newcastle made an offer to buy me and that Middlesbrough asked for Alan Smith as part of the deal taking me to St James' Park.

"I still haven't made up my mind about moving. I've a lot of respect for the Middlesbrough fans. They've always supported me and I want to stay and repay their faith in me."
