Jussi Jaaskelainen: Here We Go Again

Jussi Jaaskelainen: Here We Go Again

The transfer window is little over a month away and once again speculation that Jussi Jaaskelainen is to leave Bolton has started, with Tottenham said to be the suitors this time. That he signed a new four-year deal in summer hasn`t stopped the gossip. Of course Nicolas Anelka did the same thing, but the situation was different then with the club wanting to renegotiate his contract in order to ensure a sizeable sell on fee for his move to Chelsea.

Spurs can`t be blamed for wanting to replace the circus performer that is Heurelho Gomes, but offer a fee like the mooted £3 million, and we`ll have no choice but to point and laugh. The big Finn has been in fine form this season, and even though in his thirties, has at least a couple of years left in him.

With reserve keeper Ali Al Habsi out of contract in the summer, he would be a better target. The Omani stopper performed admirably at the end of last season in Jaaskelainen`s absence, and is keen for first team football.

Think Jaaskelainen's a class act and would welcome him at spurs however, Bolton are well within their rights to get as much as possible for him, been a quality stopper, year in, year out in the Premier league. Don't think he'll leave Bolton though, he's settled there and has been for a long while

Yes, Jussi's a class act, but Al Habsi is a fine keeper too, who's just unlucky to be at Bolton at the same time.

I would sell Jussi to a big club to reward him for his fine service over the years. Besides, I have full confidence in Al-Habsi to be a suitable replacement.
