New Bid For Norwegian Defender

Last updated : 30 August 2005 By Kevin Markey
A bid for the 24-year-old was rejected earlier this month but the Whites were expected to close a deal before the transfer window closed tonight.

Viking Chairman Ole Rugland told Aftenbladet newspaper: "We have had a dialogue with Leeds and the case is now with them.

"The suggested deal all depends on the timing of the transfer. The ball is now in Leeds' court and they still have time to answer us."

If he does join, he is unlikely to meet up with the Leeds squad until after the Norwegian season ends in October.
