The Boro striker, who has been sidelined for three months with a pubic bone problem, is set for a first team comeback in the home game against Rafa Benitez's side on January 12th.

"It will be a boost for the players to see Mido return. We are hoping he will have some involvement," manager Gareth Southgate told the Gazette.

"We are still taking things step by step with him and I don't think he will be ready to start, but his presence would strengthen the bench."
