Ahmed "Mido" Hossam reportedly told several newspapers that he will make a quick return to the Premier League after spending six months on loan to his native Zamalek from Middlesborough.

Leaving Zamalek would mean an early end to Mido's loan with the team that runs through till the end of May.

According to Mido, Hull City will be ready to table him an offer in the next few days before the Transfer Window period concludes. If a deal is set, Mido will join his countryman Amr Zaki, who officially joined the Hull City ranks a couple of days ago on a loan till the end of the season.

"Hull (City) have been talking to me for a month now as well as another English club who I cannot name at the moment," Mido told the Guardian.

Al-Shorouk, an Egyptian Newspaper, reported that Mido has also received offers from Dutch side Ajax Amsterdam and Turkish powerhouse Galatasary. According to the respected newspaper, Frank Rijkaard, Galtasary's current manager, contacted Mido and urged him to join the club.

Mido's decision to leave Zamalek earlier than his loan period ends, came after Hassan Shehata, the often controversial Egyptian national team manager, made the decision to leave Mido out of the Egyptian national squad that traveled to Angola to participate in the African Nations Cup.

With major injuries to superstars such as Zaki, Mohammed Abo Trika, and Mohammed Barakat, Shehata stunned Egyptian fans when he decided to overlook Mido's attacking presence on an underhanded Egyptian squad.
