The 19-year-old, who was a January signing from Molde, impressed in Saturday's 1-1 draw with Stoke City, which brought Cardiff closer to their relegation rivals.
Solskjaer has expressed his delight with Daehli's recent form and believes that the youngster has been key in his side's late push for Premier League survival.
"He is proving time and time again that he is worth a place in the team," Solskjaer told Sky Sports News.
"He gets you on the edge of your seat, he does things, the difficult things at times, and he is fantastic at just playing simple when that is required.
"He's a good footballer, and I think he has done fantastic since he has come here."
Daehli has made 13 appearances in all competitions for Cardiff so far this season.
