Ole Gunnar Solskjær closes in on his first signings as Cardiff manager

• Magnus Wolff Eikrem and Mats Moller Daehli set to join club
• Solskjaer worked with both at Molde and Manchester United

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is closing in on his first signings as Cardiff's manager. He has targeted the midfielders Magnus Wolff Eikrem and Mats Moller Daehli, both capped by Norway and with whom he worked with at his former club Molde and while in charge of the Manchester United reserve team.

Eikrem, 23, is at the Dutch club Heerenveen, having been sold by Molde last summer, but he attended Cardiff's FA Cup win at Newcastle on Saturday and has travelled to south Wales for a medical. The deal will be worth around £2m and should be completed before Saturday's Premier League home game against West Ham.

It is understood that Daehli, 18, is set to have a medical and complete a move from Molde.

Cardiff have also been linked with Blackpool's Tom Ince and Crystal Palace's Jonathan Williams, as well as a loan deal for United's Wilfried Zaha. © 2014 Guardian News and Media Limited or its affiliated companies.
