Norwegian striker Jo Inge Berget has signed for Premier League side Cardiff for an undisclosed fee, according to BBC Sport.

The 23-year-old has four caps for his country and joins the Welsh side from Norwegian side Molde FK where the striker spent three years, scoring 17 goals in 63 appearances.

Berget began his career at Norwegian side Lyn FK before he was quickly sold to Italian side Udinese, but failed to make any appearances for the Serie A side and instead was sent out on loan back to Lyn where he scored five goals in 27 games.

He then spent the end of the 2010/11 season at Strømsgodset IF in Norway, where he managed to net eight goals in 31 appearances.

He joins Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side who sit bottom of the Premier League as they head into the FA Cup fourth round tie with Championship outfit Bolton on Saturday, before next week's trip to Manchester United on Tuesday.

 "He knows the way I want to play, he's strong, intelligent, smart," said Solskjaer.

"He scored against England in the Under-21 European Championships and will do well for us."
