Leroy Lita in, Mido out at Middlesbrough

Leroy Lita has signed for Middlesbrough today on a free transfer having finished his contract with previous club Reading in June. Earlier reports suggested that Lita had been made offers from Sheffield United, Leicester and Norwich,but the player has opted for Middlesbrough.

Lita spent most of last season away from the Madjeski Stadium with loan spells at Charlton and Norwich after falling out of favour with Reading. The 24 year old is looking to kick start his career with Brough.

The troublesome Mido has been packed off to Egypt , on loan to Zamalek for this season. The player really does have a serious attitude and is frustratingly inconsistent but once in a while does something special. But Gareth Southgate has done the right thing to ship him away, without doubt.
