Interestingly i looked up teh player many blame for Southgate's demise and Boro's relegation last year.

He was released by Boro 10 days ago a week after Gareth was sacked, after being signed for 11m! Did no side want him to the extent they could get no transfer fee for him at all?

Wonder where he will end up, always looked like he had no luck in front of goal, often getting into good positions but the final strike just not being there. With so many foreign player to play on our shores teh first season seems to be a struggle but then many come good.Would it be the same with him or was there something bigger underpinning his lack of success.

He scoring rate in Holland was better than Van horseface.

He plays for Al Sadd Sports Club in Qatar now. He signed a three-year deal with them.

Ah ok, do you know if it was a transfer or loan? Soccerbase has him down as released on 28/10/09 which seems strange.
