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.
