Middlesbrough forward Mido has joined Egyptian giants Zamalek on a season-long loan deal.
The 26-year-old could make the move permanent at the end of his loan period.
Boro will get an initial Ã‚Â£4million and could pocket a further Ã‚Â£1million if the move becomes permanent.
Zamalek spokesperson Sabri Serag told the club’s official website: “Chairman Mamdouh Abbas exerted lots of efforts to wrap up the deal.
“We paid Middlesbrough Ã‚Â£4million to acquire Mido’s services. We can also sign him permanently next summer if we pay Ã‚Â£1million to the English side.”
Mido had been expected to leave Middlesbrough following their relegation to the Championship.
