Solskjaer has already brought in midfielders Magnus Wolff Eikrem and Mats Moller Daehli from Heerenveen and Molde respectively.

Berget, who like Eikrem and Daehli shares an agent with Solskjaer, was out of contract with Molde in the summer and has signed a two-and-a-half year contract at Cardiff City Stadium.

Solskjaer said: "I'm delighted to welcome Jo to the club. He went through his medical last night and signed his contract this morning.

"He's a forward and a full Norwegian international and arrives on a very good deal for us. He knows the way I want to play, he's a secondary front man and is a very strong and intelligent footballer. He'll do well for us."

The trio of Eikrem, Daehli and Berget may not be the big-name signings Cardiff fans would like to see, but Solskjaer has backed the triumvirate to shine in English football.

"We are talking about three full internationals I have brought in for a very cheap price compared to what they give us," he said.

"They are long-term value for money.

"Of course they haven't played in the Premier League but they are all full internationals and I know them because I have had them before.

"I know their personalities."
