Former Manchester United striker Kiko Macheda admits Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was key in choosing to move to Cardiff City.

Cardiff announced the signing on their website on Tuesday after the Italian striker successfully completed a medical.

Macheda said: "Last season I had a good spell on loan at Birmingham City, but this is a new chapter of my career now and I can't wait to get started and show everyone who I am.

"Knowing Ole, he wants to get back into the Premier League as soon as possible and the recent signings show that.

"I'm here for the same reason. I feel that this is a great team and if we can have a good season and work hard then we can go straight back up."
