NATIONAL rep and star Lautoka mid-fielder Alvin Avinesh has been slapped with a $9000 transfer fee to switch to another district for the upcoming new season.

Avinesh has been linked to a move to neighbouring district Nadi ahead of the Pacific Cup which starts in New Zealand on November 21.

Nadi Football Association president Tarun Patel said they were still considering Avinesh's switch since there were financial obligations involved.

Patel said the player would be an asset to the team having vast experience in the midfield.

"We are considering Alvin's offer," Patel said.

"Certainly Alvin is a valuable player. He has been playing top level football in the country for some time."

"But for now we have a total of 16 players who will be travelling to New Zealand for the Pacific Cup.

"Our group visa is in the process. We will get other guest players to join in Auckland to make a full squad."

Meanwhile, Lautoka Football Association president Shalendra Prasad said they would not stop any player from leaving the district.

He said the players needed to fulfil all their obligations before they would be released.

"Alvin owes $9000 in total," Prasad said.

"He will need to settle $5000 with Labasa Football Association and $4000 with the Blues Fans Club.

"Also the parent body has deducted some money from us on behalf of Labasa.

"This amount should be reimbursed to Lautoka."

The new Fiji FA transfer window will close on November 30.
