    Jim Solbakken told united.no that a number of clubs in the Championship would like to borrow Magnus Eikrem.

    Rough Translation: Google Translate

    Isn't the loan window still open? could go sooner than January.

    I think Championship clubs can still loan but only from English clubs.

    I didn't think he was going to even be on the bench after playing for the Reserves. Should have come on with a sub left and us being 5-1 on. Perhaps Ole had said he wanted him to play tonight. But then why have him on the bench.

    The only reason I can think of why Eikrem or even Evans didn't come on was because of tonight's reserves game, but then why not bring De Laet on?

    the fact that he says he's close to the first tam means a chance would be coming soon, after a bit of thought i realised we always delay offering contracts to youngsters till around Dec/Jan?

    Same happened with Cleverley last season didn't it? we didn't actually sign him on a new contract till June!!
    so i'm still keep hope, i think we'll keep Eikrem and loan him out?

    Don't believe a word from talkSPORT. Eikrem's not an established name however so I doubt they're making it up. There's something in it.

    Eikrem has been sold to Molde. Confirmed by scandinavian memebers of the supporters group. Eikrem said goodbye to his team mates last night and said he's looking forward to playing with his boyhood club and continuing to work with Ole.

    Norwegian Journo, Vegard Fl. Vaagbo has said: “I’m told no agreement is reached between clubs. Can’t say how likely a transfer is, but Molde’s interest is well known”

    Looks like it was all just rumour.

    Loan would make more sense.

    Apparently when he was saying his goodbyes today, he said goodbye until February.

    Apparently United are playing Molde in a friendly on Feb 28th behind closed doors at Carrington...

    Why not just loan him to Molde then?I hope United have inserted a buy back clause if they've actually sold him

    The quotes that came out a few weeks ago from him said that while he was really close to the first team, going home and working with Ole with his boyhood club is very tempting. Wouldn't say he's become fed up, we've bought a few players from Molde over the years and have a connection with them, if he can prove himself at Molde, he'll be back.

    “He is Solskjaer’s first signing for Molde” is the headline. Goes on to say that "formalities remain".

    He'll be back if he impresses. Indefinite loan is what i'd call it.

    yeah i think a buy back clause is likely,
    maybe it's Sir Alex's going away gift for Ole? i think Eikrem is leaving on a free deal?

    very weird actually that Fergie never really gave him a shot, maybe he thinks he's not physically ready?

    Solskjaer has signed Eikrem and Angan, and is closing in no Joshua Gatt and Børre Steenslid, and maybe Andre Senghor.

    United has a buy back clause with Eikrem.

    Gatt has joined Molde by the way. There have been rumours he's going to try and take some of our youngsters on loan, Joshua King being one of them, this will get him involved in Norweigan football and help him get into the Norweigan national teams and also continue to learn under one of the best finishers. He's still young and can go on loan to a English club when he's older to gain experience of English football. Only problem with King going back to Norway is the possibility his head could be turned.

    Magnus Eikrem has told MFK TV that he had an offer from Manchester United, but he decided to move as he didn't see a future at OT.
    "You're scared of him, everyone's scared of him." -Eikrem on Sir Alex Ferguson.
    "Paul Scholes, no doubt. He's the best every day. When we lost Ronaldo, the club moved on, when we lose Scholes it will be very hard."
    On Ronaldo: "He trained very hard before and after training, but he wasn't as good as Scholsey, Giggsy and Rooney during training".
    "I've learnt most from the best. Neville, Giggs and Scholes. How professional they are during training, even if they've won everything."
    "It's down to Fergie being so strict. He doesn't let ANYONE rest on their laurels. It didn't matter if it was Paul Scholes or me."

    Eikrem has won the young player of the year award in Norway. Excellent.

    Brilliant for him. Ole wasn't up for Manager of the Year, apparently because he's not part of the LMA in Norway.
