Hugo Vetlesen (20) is in place in Bodø and can be ready before the transition deadline is out. At the same time, Torgeir Bjarmann (52) believes that Andreas Hanche-Olsen (23) will be ready for a Belgian club.
– It’s really in Hugo’s hands. We are in dialogue so we’ll see. He has been allowed to travel, says Torgeir Bjarmann to VG, about Vetlesen’s visit to the north.
It seems to be a hectic day in the office for Stabæk’s sports manager. Several players may be on their way out, at the same time as one is confirmed ready and several may be on their way in.
At the same time, not all news is equally well received. After the club posted a picture of the 52-year-old in the office, several Stabæk supporters expressed their concern that Hugo Vetlesen will travel to a Norwegian rival.
– We’ll have to take it when it arrives. In general, it is never popular to sell your own pet eggs. He is the second person this year to go inland (after Ola Brynhildsen, editor’s note), if you will put it that way. But there are many reasons why it happens, he says.
Bjarmann himself used his own Twitter account to respond to the concerns. There he wrote that “of course no one wants to sell internally in Norway if it can be avoided”.
At the same time, he pointed out factors such as contract length, development, playing time, finances and wishes from the player.
At the same time, Andreas Hanche-Olsen is on his way away from Stabæk. The midfielder is in Belgium to complete a transfer. There he must have visited both Standard Liège and Ghent, something
have mentioned before.
– Everything indicates that you reach the finish line. Nothing is officially clear. It’s probably approaching something. I do not think he will come home again and play for us at least, says Bjarmann.
A replacement is already ready. 19-year-old Sturla Ottesen, who was named talent of the year in the PostNord league last year, has been brought from Kjelsås.
– We know him well from before, so it was a good idea to get him in now. Right back on the club team and midfielder on the national team, then we will see what he ends up as. It is both a short-term and a long-term plan.
At the same time, the 26-year-old Belgian Daryl Werker is in place to be considered as a possible replacement for Hanche-Olsen.
