Tromso checking on United

19 February 2009 04:28
Tromso boss Per-Mathias Hogmo has confirmed that he may look to bring in a Manchester United player on loan.

Tromso have good links with United and Hogmo is a close friend of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Solskjaer enjoyed a hugely successful playing career at United after leaving his native Norway to join the club, and he remains on the coaching staff.

"I have spoken to Ole Gunnar about what might be found on the market. We have checked a few possible names in United," Hogmo told Nordlys.

"I can't comment on names."

It is thought that Lee Martin may be one of the players Hogmo is interested in as Tromso are short of options on the wing.

The 22-year-old has already been loaned out several times but Sir Alex Ferguson may decide he needs further experience.

Hogmo insists there are other avenues open to Tromso, although he would like to capture a new winger before the new Norwegian season kicks off next month.

"It is absolutely possible to loan a player from United, something we have discussed both with Ole Gunnar and Mark Dempsey," he explained.

"But we can't wait for the season in England to end. We need to have sorted this by March 15, that's where we set our deadline."
