Second Ali Al-Habsi Bid Turned Down






It would appear that Wigan Athletics latest bid to Bolton Wanderers for goalkeeper Ali Al-Habsi has been turned down after the Oman international revealed as much on his twitter account late last night.

Early last week the Latics had a 2 million bid for Al-Habsi rebuked by Bolton, they quickly followed this up with an improved offer of 3 million on Friday only for Al-Habsi to reveal on his twitter account last night that the latest bid has also been rejected.

Bolton have said that they want 5 million for their third choice goalkeeper who had his career turned round during a one year loan spell at the Latics, the 29 year old started 33 games and became a fans favourite, taking the player of the season award by a landslide. Previously, Al-Habsi had made just 10 appearances in four years for Bolton.

TBH you'd have thought that a fee would have been agreed in the loan package as is usually the norm
worbo
yeah...a buy out clause. can't believe they didn't.
R-Wigan
Something tells me we're not going to get him unless Whelan actually doubles the amount to 5m.
robin
I want him to come but we should not be held to ransom. 3.5 Million final offer for me
ZAKKY
5 million is still a good price for him. at least we know what were going to get with him. its not a gamble
Catterall
5mill for Al-Habsi who has proven himself in the Prem seems a bargain. 6million cough Boselli cough...
