Middlesbrough have revealed they have agreed a fee with Tottenham for Mido.
The 24-year-old is now at Boro's Rockliffe Park training ground to undergo a medical.
Boro manager Gareth Southgate is hopeful of completing a deal in the next 36 hours.
"We've agreed a fee with Tottenham and that's enabled us to have Mido up to see us and he's currently in the process of having a medical," Southgate told Boro's official website.
"Hopefully if everything goes well we'll have some news in the next 36 hours.
"All the talks have been very positive and I don't see the medical being too much of a problem for him."
