Alternative front derailleur to the Shimano Deore XT FD-M770 3 x 9 speed

Hi all,

My front derailleur on my 2007 Merlin Malt 4 has been giving me grief for the last couple of months getting stuck in the middle cog, which is bearable most of the time, but annoying some of the time. No amount of cleaning, oiling, WD-40ing seems to fix the problem permanently, so I think it's time to replace it.

The derailleur I have is the Shimano Deore XT FD-M770 3 x 9 speed, but I can't seem to find this in stock anywhere now. Shimano have probably discontinued it and replaced it with a different model, but I don't have a clue what that would be. I'm not up on the latest parts etc, so can anyone tell me what I could buy as an alternative, at a similar price point (around £30-£40) that will be in stock online.

Many thanks
2007 Merlin Malt 4
