Djurgården/Älvsjö in negotiations over Nordby and Dalum Jensen

Djurgården/Älvsjö has today been negotiating the conditions for the transfer of Norwegian goalkeeper legend Bente Nordby and Danish international defender Dorte Dalum Jensen with their financially stricken Norwegian club Asker FK. Asker, that today recieved the anticipated decision from the Norwegian FA's licensing board that this year's Norwegian Cup winners does not qualify for a licence for the 2006 season, seems ready to part with Nordby and Dalum Jensen, but wants to get as much money out of the deal as possible.

Djurgården/Älvsjö, that have lost several players since the season ended, is close to signing a third player from the Norwegian league, Fløya's Danish national team defender Katrine S Pedersen. According to the rumour they are also courting UEFA Cup winner Turbine Potsdam's Conny Pohlers and the Russian super talent Jelena Danilova.
