Ahmed Hossam Hussein Abdelhamid - better known as Mido - is one of football's most famous bad boys, having fallen out with virtually every club for whom he has worked.
However having told West Ham that he would play for just ?1,000-a-week, David Sullivan decided to take a punt on a player who lists Ajax, Roma and Tottenham amongst his former clubs.
West Ham become the eleventh club for whom Mido has played - not bad for someone who, at time of joining, is still just 26.
