Steve Bruce is still trying to push through a deal for Arsenal youngster Johan Djourou.
The Birmingham City boss has been active in the transfer market over the summer and could soon take his recruitment drive into double figures.
Though Hossam Ghaly's move to St Andrews has collapsed, Mido's switch from Tottenham Hotspur has been revived.
And Arsenal defender Djourou could also join Blues after team-mate Mathieu Flamini opted to stay at Emirates Stadium.
Bruce admits he has not finished his spending spree, revealing any deal for Mido would not be the last before the close of the transfer window.
Not finished yet
"That will not be the end of things," said Bruce in response to the Mido deal.
"I'm still possibly in for Djourou. It's a possibility still.
"It's getting near the start of the season, but if you remember this time last year we got our three best signings right before the big kick-off in the three Arsenal boys Nicklas Bendtner, Fabrice Muamba and Sebastian Larsson.
"We are pleased with what we have done and brought in. Rest assured, we haven't finished yet."
