Solskjaer to leave Old Trafford
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer (right) looks set to join Spurs
Manchester United have accepted a bid from Tottenham for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer for £5.5m.
It follows United's signing of Dwight Yorke for £12.6m signing this week.
United manager, Alex Ferguson, had earlier insisted that he did not want to sell the Norwegian star and that Solskjaer wanted to stay on at the club and fight for his place.
Solskjaer, 25, was a huge success in his first season in the Premiership, but had an indifferent campaign last year - mainly due to injuries - and started the new season for United on the bench.
Spurs chairman Alan Sugar confirmed on Friday morning that he was negotiating with United for Solskjaer.
A spokesman for Saugar said: "Reports which state we have already signed Solskjaer are wide of the mark."
"But Alan is having talks with United and a deal is certainly getting closer."
