Mido has been released by Barnsley after just one 30-minute appearance. Manager Keith Hill cited injury problems and lack of fitness as the reason for releasing him. Hill said: "Every player has to be compatible with a manager's vision and I ignored a lot of people when I signed him but it just hasn't happened. It's amicable and it's unfortunate that the plan to resurrect his career hasn't worked out here."
