Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will at last shift his transfer focus to the Premier League after confirming yet another Norwegian arrival to Wales in Jo Inge Berget.

Unsurprisingly, Berget is a former Molde FK player who helped Solskjaer achieve much managerial success in Scandinavia.

The Bluebirds boss has already brought in two of his ex-charges, Magnus Wolff Eikrem and Mats Moller Daehli from the continent.

And while admitting the trio were signed for the long-term, Solskjaer promised the import of more Norwegians would be put on hold to allow for some experienced legs to come in.


"I have thought long and hard about bringing Norwegian players in", he told a press conference relayed by TV2.

"These three I am hundred percent sure can play in the Premier League. Maybe not tomorrow, but in the long term, I am one hundred percent sure.

"But next week I will try to bring some players with Premier League experience."

Berget's contract with Molde was set to expire in the summer, and the former Udinese striker is all set to become a Cardiff player now.

His medical is understood to have taken place yesterday, with Solskjaer adding: "He knows the way I want to play. He's strong, intelligent, smart, scored against England in the U21 European Championships, and will do well for us."
