Egyptian star Mido has made it his mission to show he has a long term future at West Ham after chairman David Sullivan revealed the striker joined the Hammers yesterday on wages of just �1,000 a week.

The Upton Park side completed a deal on transfer deadline day to sign the 26-year-old from Middlesbrough after he had been on loan at Egyptian side Zamalek since August.

And Mido hopes his wages gesture will prove how much he wants to carve out a career at the Premier League club.

“It is an exciting challenge for me. It is another new club, but hopefully I can prove myself and stay here for longer,” Mido told the club's official website. “We had other offers, but I have decided to play here.
