Bluebirds confirm the signing of Norwegian International midfielder
Cardiff City Football Club are pleased to announce the arrival of Norwegian International Magnus Wolff Eikrem from Dutch club Heerenveen.
The midfielder has today joined the Bluebirds for an undisclosed fee ahead of the Barclays Premier League match against West Ham at Cardiff City Stadium this Saturday. He will take squad number 15.
Speaking of his new signing, Cardiff City manager Ole Gunnar Solskjær said: “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’s 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.”
