Brann Bergen defender Christian Kalvenes has reportedly signed a deal with Dundee United after impressing on trial at Tannadice.
According to media reports emanating out of his home country the versatile Norwegian has put pen-to-paper on a move, which could solve boss Craig Brewster's persistent left back problems.
The player was a fringe member at Brann last term after being usurped by former Under-21 international Erlend Hanstveit.
Former United midfielder Charlie Miller recommended Kalvenes to Brewster though and it seems he was right about the 29-year-old.
Reports suggest the fee for 'Kalven' (meaning the calf) as he is affectionately known, is in the region of £50,000.
It is hoped that boss Craig Brewster can help him resurrect his career and recover some of the form he showed for Norwegian outfit Sogndal between 2000 and 2003.
He picked up a serious injury after that time, but it is hoped that regular first team football in the Scottish Premier League this season will help get him back to his best.
