Blackburn Rovers manager Kenny Dalglish completed the signing of Lillestrom central defender Henning Berg.
Rovers were in fourth in the first Barclays Premier League season at the time and the 23-year-old did not break into the team straight away. He made his debut as a 70th-minute substitute in a 2-1 home defeat by Crystal Palace at the start of February and his first start came in a 1-1 draw against Middlesbrough in the middle of March.
Berg only made two more appearances that season, one from the start and one from the bench, before establishing himself in the side at right-back during the following campaign.
He only missed two matches in the next season, 1994-95, as Rovers were crowned Barclays Premier League champions and continued to be first choice until he was sold to Manchester United in August 1997.
In four years at Old Trafford, he enjoyed Barclays Premier League title success twice more before returning to Blackburn in December, where he spent another two-and-a-half years. During that time, he helped Rovers regain their Barclays Premier League status and also win the League Cup.
He left Ewood Park in the summer of 2003 having played more than 250 times for Blackburn and enjoyed a season at Rangers before retiring.
