The 29-year-old former Tottenham and Middlesbrough man joined the Reds in the summer on a short-term deal, but a host of fitness issues has seen him manage just 27 minutes of competitive action.

And his time at Oakwell is about to come to an end, with the final touches being put on his exit.

"He's an exceptional person, he's played at the top level in most leagues in Europe," Hill said. "At 29, he slipped down the levels and I thought we could pursue a possibility of resurrecting him, but that hasn't worked out.

"But he retains the ability and pedigree, but his vision is not the same as the manager's. It is amicable, but the plan to resurrect him hasn't worked.

"We will be pursuing a different direction to Mido."

still can't see the Phil Jones thing that some people go on about. Whenever I watch him play it's a repeat of headless chicken meets a gurning Bambi on ice for 90 minutes.

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
