Cardiff City’s reinforcements begin with the reunion of manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer with former Manchester United Academy starlet Magnus Wolff Eikrem, confirming what PST had earlier this week.
Eikrem has followed his new boss from Manchester back home to Norway and back again, captaining the United youth team for Solskjaer before joining the manager at Aker Stadion to help Molde win the Tippeligaen in 2011 and 2012.
