The player, originally from Sandefjord (Norway) was in negotiations with her previous club, Larvik HK, but even the Norwegian club had a reasonable economical offer the negotiations was interrupted.
Heidi Løke says to timeoutmagazin.com:
“The offer from Larvik’s side was a good one, but I am not thinking only about the money. That’s why I had to reject them.”
The leader of Larvik HK, Bjørn-Gunnar Bruun Hansen said:
“The offer we made, were rejected. We may be the largest handball club in Norway, but in competition with the big clubs in Europe, we have a serious economical handicap. It is difficult for us when we try to sign new players.”
The Hungarian club, Győri Audi ETO is in continous negotiations with Heidi Löke and Katrine Lunde, an official announcement about the result of these will be made on next Friday.
