Lyn Oslo insist no compromise has yet been reached regarding John Obi Mikel.
Lyn Oslo have refuted the latest reports which suggest Chelsea and Manchester United have reached a compromise regarding John Obi Mikel.
The Nigeria international is wanted by both Premiership clubs, with United seemingly having struck a deal 12 months ago.
Mikel claimed he was pressured into signing for The Red Devils and has stated that he wants to join champions Chelsea.
The matter is currently in the hands of Fifa, although recent reports have claimed that Chelsea have agreed to pay United £10 million for the young midfielder.
But Mikel's current club Lyn have revealed the African starlet has not been granted permission to complete a move to Stamford Bridge.
"John Obi Mikel is not all clear for Chelsea as the English media have claimed," Lyn director Morgan Andersen told TV Norge.
Mikel's agent John Shittu is also unaware of any settlement being agreed between Chelsea and United, and believes he will be the first to know when a resolution has been reached.
Shittu told VG: "I haven't heard anything about this and I am usually the first one who gets contacted about such matters."
