Latics’ latest Ali bid ‘rejected’
Bolton are understood to have rejected Wigan’s latest bid for
goalkeeper Ali Al-Habsi.
The 29-year-old Oman international was Latics’ player of the
season for the 2010/11 Premier League campaign having joined on
loan from the Trotters, and Roberto Martinez is understandably
eager to recruit him on a permanent basis.
Reports on Friday suggested Wigan had made a £3million
offer for Al-Habsi, having already had a £2million bid turned
down. Bolton may be looking for around £5million.
Aston Villa are also said to be interested in the former Lyn
Oslo custodian, but with the Birmingham outfit looking for a new
manager, it remains to be seen if they will firm up their interest
