Everton were regarded as favourites after David Moyes personally took in a Molde game, while Manchester United, Newcastle, Fulham and Sunderland are also said to have an interest.

Now Molde's boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed that Forren will not be linking up with the Norway national squad this month as he is in talks to leave the club.

"Vegard is not travelling to the National Team camp because we are in the final stages of negotiations with another club," Solskjaer told Romsdals Budstikke.

"It's possible that Vegard will go for a medical check-up and negotiate his personal contract."
