Cardiff sign Norway international Daehli

New Cardiff manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has made his second signing as Bluebirds boss, bringing in Norway international midfielder Mats Moller Daehli from his former club Molde.

Daehli, 18, follows fellow ex-Manchester United reserve Magnus Wolff Eikrem to the Cardiff City Stadium. Both were managed by Solskjaer during his spell in charge of the Old Trafford second string.

Cardiff were beaten 2-0 at home by West Ham in the Premier League on Saturday, and Solskjaer has said he is keen to bring in new recruits during January in order to boost their battle against relegation.

Shortly after the end of the game against the Hammers, Cardiff tweeted conformation of Daehli's arrival, and a statement on their official website said: "Daehli’s talent has already been recognised by Norway, and he has won two full international caps for his country to date.

"He was first called up to the squad in November for their friendly matches against Scotland and Denmark. He came on as a substitute in both.

Speaking after the deal to bring in Eikrem was concluded, Solskjaer told the official Cardiff website: "Magnus is a playmaker, a quarterback if you will, someone who likes to get on the ball and can see a pass.

"He's technically very good, including set pieces and has great vision. Magnus will add a lot to Cardiff City and will blend in very well with the midfielders in the squad."
