Lennie fed up over Bjorn Riise delays

"This is going on too long, I want to sign the lad or forget it. He is a talented lad, but we haven't been able to see him in a match and now he will miss this weeks reserve game at Swindon."

Riise was on the verge of signing last week when his former club Aalesund made a claim for compensation for his signing. Lennie was only prepared to sign the player if he cost nothing and demanded a fax from the Norweigian FA confirming the player could come for nothing.

Lawrence is not happy with the flow of information from Norway and is still waiting for precise clarification.

For now the matter is ongoing.
