Double Ghaly deal for Blues

21 Jul 2007 - 13:27:49

Birmingham City boss Steve Bruce has revealed he hopes to land Hossam Ghaly alongside Tottenham Hotspur team-mate Mido.

Bruce agreed a £6million fee with the north London club for Egypt international striker Mido on Friday.

But the Blues chief is also hoping to persuade Spurs counterpart Martin Jol to allow unsettled midfielder Ghaly to leave White Hart Lane.

Ghaly's future at the club has been in doubt after reacting angrily to being substituted in the penultimate game of last season and throwing his shirt to the ground on his way off the pitch.

Bruce is hoping to land the 26-year-old midfielder for around £3million.

Referring to the double deal, he told the Daily Mail: "We started off negotiating a loan.

"Then I was told we could buy Mido and Ghaly too. It was a bit of a surprise.

"Our board have realised, as well as I have, that you must be competitive in this current market.

"So we've made a big investment and I'm absolutely delighted."
