Vegard Forren says that fellow Norwegian Ole Gunnar Solskjaer persuaded him to move to play in England with Southampton.

New Southampton defender Vegard Forren has revealed that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was a massive factor in his move to the Premier League.

The 24-year-old left Molde earlier this month to make the move to St Mary's after rejecting the chance to have a trial at Liverpool.

The Norwegian centre-back admits that his old boss was keen on persuading his compatriot to make the switch to England.

"For me [Solskjaer] has meant everything to me, he is a great coach and I have taken big steps because of him," said Forren.

"I spoke a lot to him about the move and he really wanted to give me this opportunity so I have to thank him for that.

"I haven't spoken to him in the last week but maybe I will give him a call soon. He thinks it is a good step for me and a club on the way up."

Forren is yet to appear for the Saints.
