Wigan Athletic Football Club have been told Ali Al-Habsi won’t come cheap.
The Oman international is on loan at the DW Stadium for the season, but Roberto Martinez is said to be keen on making the deal permanent.
However, Bolton Wanderers boss Owen Coyle has told his Lancashire rival that the 28-year-old goalkeeper will not be made available on the cheap.
"The only way they can keep him for good is by paying our club a large transfer fee, if indeed that's acceptable to us," said the Trotters manager.
"Wigan can make as much noise as they want. Ultimately I will decided whether Ali Al-Habsi is a Bolton Wanderers goalkeeper or not."
