Sunderland boss Roy Keane has confirmed he hopes to announce the signing of Tottenham striker Mido in the next 48 hours.

"I hope to have news [of signings] in the next 24 to 48 hours," said Keane. "I'm trying very hard to bring in new players and Mido is one I'd love to get into the club.

"Mido's a player I've been aware of for some time.

"I think we could provide Mido with a challenge and he would provide the other strikers here with a challenge."
