Cardiff City have made their third signing of the January transfer window with the capture of forward Jo Inge Berget from Norwegian side Molde.
The 23-year-old, who spent three years at Udinese before returning to Norway, has moved for an undisclosed fee after agreeing a two-and-a-half year contract. He will wear the
No 34 shirt.
"I'm delighted to welcome Jo to the club," said Cardiff manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. "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."
Berget, who has four caps for Norway, played under Solskjaer at Molde, winning two Tippeligaen titles in 2011 and 2012. He scored 17 goals in 63 appearances for the club. He is the third player to be reunited with Solskjaer, who has signed midfielders Magnus Wolff Eikrem and Mats Moller Daehli since taking the reins at Cardiff City at the start of January.
