Celta considering Mido move

Celta Vigo have confirmed their interest in Tottenham striker Mido, but admit there are complications.
The Egyptian has had to compete with Dimitar Berbatov, Robbie Keane and Jermain Defoe for a starting role at White Hart Lane this season.
Celta Vigo would like to persuade Mido to part with Spurs and return to the Estadio Balaidos, where he spent time on loan in 2003.
However, director of sport Felix Carnero believes Celta may not even be able to afford Mido, and also that there may already be enough strikers at the club.
"It is very difficult. We do not have space for him," said Carnero.
"It would also be very complicated to pay an elevated amount of money.
"Possibly he wants to come to Vigo, where he has played, but right now he cannot come because we do not have space."
Playmaker Nene has been linked with a move away from Spain and Carnero admits Celta could be willing to do a trade with Tottenham.
"If they offered é¼10million (£6.6million) we would have to make a decision," he explained.
"If one player goes away, we will look in the market for someone to replace him."
Meanwhile, Carnero has dismissed any chance of Celta signing Lyon striker John Carew, with Werder Bremen believed to be closing in on the Norwegian.
"He has two other options. One is in England and one is in Germany. Probably he will finish in Germany."
