Second Ali Al-Habsi Bid Turned Down

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

Something tells me we're not going to get him unless Whelan actually doubles the amount to 5m.
