Medel cost £9million from Sevilla last summer, but it is not expected that he will remain in south Wales ahead of next season following Cardiff's relegation from the Premier League.

The Chilean is widely reported to have a relegation release clause, and Solskjaer admits that Medel, who will be playing in the World Cup finals, will not be featuring in the Championship.

"Gary is a top, top player who deserves to be playing at a higher level than the Championship and he has proven that," admitted Solskjaer.

"Nothing has come up yet, no offers have been received for Gary."

Solskjaer also confirmed he had received enquiries for a number of his players, with reports suggesting that England international defender Steven Caulker and Scottish goalkeeper David Marshall could also leave.

"We have a big squad and it's not sustainable to have that amount of first-team players on contract," said the Norwegian.

"I have spoken to players, had chats to them.

"The wheeling and dealing has already started."

ark clattenburg is one of those referees that tends to get stick from both sides cos he likes to let the game flow and is quite lenient, and people only remember the fouls against their own team that go unpunished whilst not noticing the ones they've gotten away with. To pick up 4 yellow cards with clattenburg in charge speaks volumes about your approach to the game mr pellegrini.

astly under-rated goal keeper. Barcelona could have gone out and bought a keeper at any point they liked, but they stuck with him for a reason.
