New Cardiff City manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has said that he is happy with the squad he has inherited from Malky Mackay, but is looking to add some depth to it, BBC Sport has reported.

Solskjaer was officially appointed manager of the Welsh club on Thursday after the controversial sacking of Mackay, whose relationship with owner Vincent Tan had broken down. The Norwegian claimed victory in his first game in charge on Saturday, as Cardiff came from behind to overcome Newcastle United in the FA Cup.

Having been assured of excessive funds by Tan, Solskjaer is reportedly close to bringing two of his fellow countrymen, Mats Moller Daehli and Magnus Wolff Eikrem to the Cardiff City Stadium. Moller Daehli, 18, plays for Solskjaer’s former club Molde, while Wolff Eikrem currently plays in the Netherlands for Heerenveen.

And Solskjaer believes that adding depth to his squad will be important. He said: "I have a solid foundation here but it's a long season.

"The quality is there. We have got loads of quality to work with and then maybe some additions to blend in. It's the longest and hardest and most intense season in any football country, so the depth of the squad is something I am looking at."
