Doubts over the future of Kinnear
Friday 13 June 1997
Age Hareide is in charge of Molde, the Norwegian club owned by the millionaires Kjell Inge Rokke and Bjorn Rune Gjeltsen. The partners this week paid around pounds 30m for a controlling interest in Wimbledon, and are expected to appoint Hareide, a former Manchester City and Norwich midfielder, to a coaching position with the south London side.
The Norwegian partners have previously attempted to buy into Leeds and Manchester City, and on each occasion they planned to install Hareide, a close friend of Rokke's, as the manager. Hareide has already told contacts in Norway that he will be joining Wimbledon.
Tommy Burns, the former Celtic manager, yesterday confirmed he had turned down the Reading manager's job in favour of joining the coaching staff at Newcastle United. Burns played with Kenny Dalglish, the Magpies' manager, at Celtic in the 1970s.
Sunderland completed the pounds 325,000 signing of the Dutch goalkeeper Edwin Zoetebier from Volendam yesterday, but have been ordered by Fifa, world football's governing body, to resolve the dispute over the collapse of a proposed deal for the Beitar Jerusalem striker, Ronen Harazi.
The Wearsiders pulled out of a four-year deal last December when a medical report revealed he was suffering from a stress fracture to a foot. Fifa does not recognise the English system of transfers subject to a medical and have backed Harazi's claim for compensation.
Crystal Palace are signing the Watford goalkeeper, Keith Miller, for pounds 1.5m. The Eagles' swoop is a blow to Nottingham Forest, who had thought they were signing the Devon-born player. However, their failure to agree a price with Watford allowed Palace to step in.
Aberdeen have signed the Scotland goalkeeper, Jim Leighton, on a free transfer from Hibernian. The 38-year-old, who began his senior career with the Dons before moving to Manchester United, returns on a three-year deal. Everton's Swiss full-back, Marc Hottiger, is going home to join Lausanne for around pounds 25,000.
