Cardiff City have signed Norwegian duo Magnus Wolff Eikrem to boost the Welsh club’s chances of avoiding relegation this season. The footballer previously played under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer when he managed Manchester United’s reserve team.

Magnus Wolff Eikrem is a Norwegian national team player who has been signed from Heerenveen in the Dutch league. The midfielder joins Cardiff for an undisclosed fee.

Mats Moller Daehli, meanwhile, is another midfielder who is expected to be signed from Molde. Cardiff have yet to officially announce his signature due to a paperwork delay, but the announcement will be made in the next few days.

The signing of the new Norwegian player heralds a new era at Cardiff City under new manager Solskjaer, who plans on putting his own stamp on the Premier League side.

Here are clips of Eikrem and Daehli in action:

One Response to Cardiff City Sign Norwegian Midfield Duo Magnus Wolff Eikrem

  1. Villan in VA says:

    Ok, didn’t the owner fire his head of personnel and his head coach basically because they had “overspent” in the last transfer window and said no more funds would be therefore made available in January. The team had the players to stay up. This was his claim. Guess we all see how true that was now
