Manchester United legend Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is coming back to English football, according to the Daily Mirror.

The newspaper go big on the story that the Norwegian will take over at West Bromwich Albion, replacing Steve Clarke.

Solskjaer has been touted as a future United manager for some time, and his first stint saw him win the Norwegian title with his hometown club Molde for the first time in their history before repeating the trick again.

This year, things weren't so great, as the club could only manage a 6th-place finish. But Solskjaer's stock has still risen enough to see him claim a job at a solid mid-table club.

While we're all obviously #TeamMoyes, it doesn't hurt to have an insurance policy, and obviously it's great to see Ole doing well for himself. Here's hoping he has as much success as possible and lies down for an easy three points. It'll be weird seeing him in the opposition dug-out though, considering he still looks about twelve.
