It looks like Wigan Athletic may have to pay quite a large transfer fee if they want to make the loan move for goalkeeper Ali Al-Habsi a permanent one with Bolton Wanderers boss Owen Coyle making his point in the local press.
Al-Habsi has been in scintillating form for the Latics since claiming the starting place between the sticks from Chris Kirkland and there have been noises emitting from the DW Stadium about a desire to keep the Oman international for the long term.
Speaking to the Bolton Evening News, Coyle says that if the Latics want Al-Habsi then they will have to pay for him, and pay big, Coyle also says he will decide if indeed he does get sold.
Coyle said: "The only way they can keep him for good is by paying our club a large transfer fee - if indeed that`s acceptable to us"
"Wigan can make as much noise as they want, ultimately I`ll decide whether Ali Al-Habsi is a Bolton Wanderers goalkeeper or not."
"There`s no anticipation necessary, I`ll decide what happens on Al-Habsi, in conjunction with the chairman and the owner.
"We put him on loan because it was a win-win-win situation. Ali gets games in the Premier League, we get a terrific loan fee, and I have got a terrific goalkeeper in Adam Bogdan, who has shown he can step in when necessary - so it was a great bit of business for the football club."
