According to BBC reports, Solskjaer, 41, held talks with chairman Mehmet Dalman on Wednesday, and an announcement on the Norwegian’s future is expected on Thursday, as details of his departure are finalised.

The Bluebirds are 17th in the Championship after three losses in seven games, including Tuesday’s 1-0 home defeat by Middlesbrough and a 4-2 capitulation against Norwich.

The former Manchester United striker took over from Malky Mackay on 2 January, but failed to save City from Premier League relegation. After the latest defeat, the Norwegian said he accepted the blame for the club’s poor run of form.

Pulis, who left Palace in the week before the start of the season, and who is from the Cardiff area and grew up watching them as a fan – is among the leading candidates for the post, according to Telegraph reports.

The Daily Mail believe that Dundee manager Paul Hartley is among the other contenders, with City owner Vincent Tan eager to consider young, up and coming coaches as well.
