Following Malky Mackay's sacking on Friday the former Manchester United striker and current Molde manager was quickly marked out as Cardiff chaiman Mehmet Dalman's number one target to replace the Scot.

Earlier this week it had been suggested Solskjaer, 40, had reservations about taking the job following Cardiff owner Vincent Tan's numerous disputes with Mackay over recent months.

But Dalman remained confident he could convince the Norwegian to take over at Cardiff City Stadium with the promise of money to spend in the January transfer window and reassurances over the working structure at the club.

Press Association Sport understands the deal for Solskjaer to take over has yet to be completed and negotiations are continuing.
