Solskjaer in Villa talks
2:38pm Friday 18th May 2012 in Premier League
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has started talks on becoming Aston Villa's new manager.
Collected from his home town of Kristiansund in Villa owner Randy Lerner's private jet, Solskjaer was joined on the flight by wife Silje.
After Lerner sacked Alex McLeish on Monday after a wretched 11 months in charge, Solskjaer is seemingly seen by the owner as the young, progressive manager to take Villa forward.
After 11 seasons as a player with Manchester United and a further two and a half years at Old Trafford as reserve team manager, the 39-year-old returned to Molde in 2010 after spending two years at the club as a player in the mid-1990s.
Last October, at the end of his first season in charge, Solskjaer guided Molde to their first Norwegian League title in their 100-year history.
