Former Manchester United striker has Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has reportedly been shortlisted as a contender to fill the managerial post at Leicester City, recently vacated by Sven Goran Eriksson.

According to the Independent, Foxes millionaire owner Vichai Raksriaksorn is considering appointing the Norwegian after Huddersfield Town's Lee Clark rejected the job.

Solskjaer has just delivered Molde's first league title in their history during his maiden season as a senior manager.

The 38-year-old had previously taken charge of the Manchester United reserves for three years after retiring as a player at Old Trafford.

After a commendable stint in charge of United's second string, Solskjaer returned to Norway with Molde in January and has already enjoyed somewhat unexpected success with this former club.

Solskjaer played for Molde between 1994 and 1996 before being signed by Sir Alex Ferguson for £1.5 million.

He made retired in 2007 having played 366 games and scored 126 goals; one of which was the winner in the 1999 Champions League final.
