Al-Habsi Wants Early Transfer

Last updated : 30 August 2005 By Matt Bottom

Lyn goalkeeper Ali Al-Habsi is desperate to fast-track his move to Bolton before Wednesday's transfer deadline.

The 23 year old has signed a pre-contract agreement to move to The Reebok Stadium in January, however the Norwegian outfit have been reluctant to allow the star to complete his dream move to The Premiership ahead of schedule.

"In my head I am already in Bolton," Al-Habsi told Dagbladet.

"Therefore I am hoping that Lyn will accept some compensation from Bolton, allowing me to get started with my new career.

"Lyn would make me very happy in case they agree to that.

"Manager Sam Allardyce has said that he will give me the chance to prove that I deserve to be the first keeper."
