Seeking new challenge, Egyptian forward Ahmed Hossam “Mido” has decided to terminate his contract with Dutch club Ajax Amsterdam and leave for a new club in the current transfer window.
“Mido set to leave Ajax. The player announced that his future will be some where else,” the Dutch giants announced in a statement on their official website on Tuesday.
The 28-year-old joined his former club Ajax last summer from English Premier League side Middlesbrough, but it was reported that his future is uncertain under new coach Frank de Boer following the departure of his beloved coach Martin Jol.
Despite the fact that his current contract runs until next June, the Pharaohs star decision to leave was based on what he said would be limited playing opportunities.
“Mido will be absent from the first training session of the new year today. There will be a meeting with the player on Tuesday to discuss how the contract will be terminated,” added the statement.
Mido, a former striker for Tottenham and Middlesbrough, has scored three goals in only six appearances for Ajax this season.
Just before the winter break the talented striker claimed the interest from several clubs.
“Only Deportivo, La Coruna and Espanyol contacted me but the financial offers were not good,” he told an Egyptian TV program on 27 December.
