Weighty issues force Mido out at Barnsley

The Barnsley manager, Keith Hill, has confirmed Egyptian striker Mido is poised to leave the club.

The 29-year-old joined Barnsley in the summer on a short-term deal, but a host of fitness issues has seen him manage just 27 minutes of competitive action.

"I thought we could pursue a possibility of resurrecting him, but that hasn't worked out," Hill said.
