Cardiff City manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is in London for talks over his future with the club, ITV Wales understands. He is speaking to the club's chairman. It comes after Tuesday's one nil defeat to Middlesbrough. Solskjaer has admitted the performance was not good enough.

We just did not get going. Our first attack looked promising and then we got countered and conceded.

We didn't need to do that in the first few minutes, we wanted to go and turn things around from losing to Norwich on Saturday and that knocked our confidence.

We want to prove we are better than we showed against Norwich and it never happened.

The first half was very poor, we got more second balls in the second half and we pushed them back, but we did not create any moments of quality to open them up which was very disappointing.
