Keeper eyes Wanderers stay

23 July 2008 02:41
Oman goalkeeper Ali Al-Habsi says he is unlikely to leave Bolton Wanderers this summer, despite interest from a number of clubs. The 26-year-old impressed last season as he secured a run in the Trotters first team, but he is likely to start the new campaign as understudy to the fit-again Jussi Jaaskelainen. Al-Habsi commented: "I spoke to (my agent) Peter Harrison after my return from Muscat two days ago, but there is nothing clear yet. "All the offers that were mentioned are not yet official and, even if they become official, I must study them well. "The truth is that I'm comfortable here at Bolton and I'm taking part in the training sessions and everything is good for me with the team. "Everything is going well and I still have one year left on my contract with Bolton and hopefully things will be good for me this season." Al-Habsi joined Bolton from Norwegian side Lyn Oslo in January 2006, but has been restricted to 16 appearances for the Premier League club to date.
