Championship boss admits star duo set for Premier League moves

Cardiff City manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has admitted that both Steven Caulker and Fraizer Campbell are set to leave the club in the near future, as reported by BBC Sport.

Queens Park Rangers are hoping to seal a deal for captain Caulker in the coming days but they face a battle with fellow London club Crystal Palace.

The Eagles are set to announce the signing of striker Campbell this weekend but are now putting all their efforts into the Caulker deal.

Solskjaer has left both players behind as the Bluebirds travel to Austria for a pre-season tour and admits their departures are close.

“I’ve more or less planned the season without them,” Solskjaer said.

“There’s been loads of approaches but still they haven’t made up their minds.

“The boys have expressed a wish to play in the Premier League next year and I’m not going to take a risk playing them in pre-season friendlies, getting hurt.

“So it’s up to them now to make the decision what they want to do next season.

“If they decide that they’re staying then it’s a different matter, but they’ve both expressed that they want to play in the Premier League and we can’t offer that.”
