Cardiff City boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has welcomed new signing Magnus Wolffe Eikrem.

The midfielder arrives from Heerenveen.

Solskjaer told Cardiff's official website: "I've known Magnus for many years, having worked with him at Manchester United and then signing him for Molde.

"While I was there I had to sell him as he was our best player - and now I feel lucky to get to sign him again for Cardiff City for a reasonable price. I see this as money well spent.

"He's a playmaker, a quarterback if you will, someone who likes to get on the ball and can see a pass.

"He is 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.''
