Solskjaer calls for immediate impact from Cardiff new boys

Cardiff manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has called for an immediate impact from the Bluebirds’ three high profile signings, according to Sky Sports.

Former Stoke striker Kenwyne Jones arrived at the club earlier in the week in a player exchange deal involving Peter Odemwingie, and Man United pair Fabio and Wilfried Zaha have also both arrived at the club – the latter on loan until the end of the season on transfer deadline day.

All three appear likely to be drafted straight into the first team when the Welsh outfit take on fellow strugglers Norwich, and Solskjaer wants them to make their presence felt right from the get-go.

Solskjaer said: “There is no honeymoon period when you come into the thick of it. We expect them and want them to perform straight away.

“The players I have got in all give us something different and something that can make a difference, a presence in the box and enthusiasm. Together they complement my squad.

“We have really had a tough month but I have seen some great development in the month. We played some very nice football at Manchester United and the new boys might have been what we were lacking.”

Cardiff are currently enduring a run of seven league games without a win, in which time they have claimed just a single point. The poor run sees them presently prop up the rest of the Premier League table, three points behind 17th-placed Sunderland.
