Cardiff manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has moved to make Magnus Wolff Eikrem and Mats Moller Daehli his first signings.

Both players were in Cardiff on Sunday night ahead of medicals with midfielder Eikrem, 23, arriving from Heerenveen for £2million and Daehil, 18, from former club Molde.

Both were former academy graduates from Manchester United and Solskjaer is also favourite to persuade the Old Trafford club to loan him winger Wilfried Zaha.

Eikrem, 23, was pictured watching Cardiff's 2-1 FA Cup win at Newcastle on Saturday, while his Heerenveen team mates were boarding the plane for a winter training camp in Portugal.

Moller Daehli is an attacking midfielder. He landed at Heathrow at 3.30pm on Monday before going on to Cardiff's Vale Hotel training ground to complete his medical.

Solskjaer hopes to fend off competition from Crystal Palace and Newcastle for Zaha.

Striker Nicky Maynard, meanwhile, will be allowed to leave Cardiff on loan. Wigan, QPR, Nottingham Forest and Crystal Palace have shown an interest.
