Like Magnus Wolff Eikrem and Mats Moller Daehli, who have also joined the Welsh club this month, Berget used to play under Solskjaer at Molde and has played four times for his country.

Solskjaer said on Friday: "He knows the way I want to play, he's a secondary frontman and is a very strong and intelligent footballer. He'll do well for us."

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

Cardiff are in last place on goal difference in the Premier League, although just one point from safety.
