Mido joins Celta de Vigo

Ajax striker Mido, who was removed from the squad two weeks ago, will finish the season with Spanish side Celta de Vigo.

It was uncertain whether UEFA would allow the Egyptian's move to Spain, as the European transfer window had been closed.

However, a specific rule in the Spanish league allows a club to replace a player who is injured for an extended period. Celta de Vigo met that requirement. Mido is hired out to the team from the Primera Division for the remainder of the season.
