Hauge involved in Bohinen transfer
Wednesday 11 October 1995
The Football Association are preparing to forward details of the move to Fifa for their inspection. "There is nothing illegal or anything for Blackburn to worry about," Bohinen said. "It was natural for me to speak to him for different reasons - he's Norwegian, he has done all the Norwegian transfers to English football for the last 10 years and he's very good at this game.
"I know all about George Graham and that Hauge is not a licensed agent. But that doesn't mean I can't ask him for advice. I used an official Danish Fifa agent and he can use anybody he wants for advice."
A Fifa spokesman, Keith Cooper, confirmed that the world governing body are waiting for the documentation regarding the Bohinen transfer to reach them. "You should not build this up too much," he said.
"We've simply become aware through the media that a certain person - Rune Hauge - appeared to be involved in this deal. We need to find out how directly he was involved. If the player went to Hauge and asked him to negotiate the transfer and Hauge said, 'No, I can't because I'm not allowed to, so I suggest you deal with another agent', we can't hold anything against Mr Hauge."
Forest, meanwhile, are giving a month's trial to the Portuguese international Antonio Pacheco. The 29-year-old, twice a European Cup finalist with Benfica, is available on a free transfer, having bought out his contract with Sporting Lisbon.
The former England def- ender Russell Osman is to sue Bristol City for wrongful dismissal - citing the fact that they have not improved since he left. Osman was originally thought to have come to an out of court settlement with the club after planning to take them to a tribunal following his sacking as manager last November.
Manchester City's German striker Uwe Rosler put an end to speculation about his future by signing a three-year contract last night. Rosler had been linked with a move to Everton, Arsenal or Sheffield Wednesday.
Everton's Daniel Amokachi and Andrei Kanchelskis both came through the full 90 minutes of a reserve game against Blackburn last night. Amokachi was playing his first match since a head injury during the European Cup- Winners' Cup match against Reykjavik two weeks ago while Kanchelskis was returning after injuring his shoulder against his old club Manchester United last month.
The Newcastle striker Paul Kitson will be out of action for six weeks after undergoing an operation for a hernia yesterday.
The former England striker Clive Allen is on the look-out for his 11th club after being released following just three appearances for Carlisle United in the Second Division.
Barry Lavety, St Mirren's Scotland Under-21 striker, has failed a drugs test carried out by the club. But Lavety will escape punishment by the Scottish FA as the drug is not performance-enhancing. "It is a social drug," his manager, Jimmy Bone, said.
