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.[LNB] Tromso have good links with United and Hogmo is a close friend of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.[LNB]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.[LNB]"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.[LNB]"I can't comment on names."[LNB]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.[LNB]The 22-year-old has already been loaned out several times but Sir Alex Ferguson may decide he needs further experience.[LNB]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.[LNB]"It is absolutely possible to loan a player from United, something we have discussed both with Ole Gunnar and Mark Dempsey," he explained. [LNB]"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."[LNB]
