OLE GUNNAR SOLSKJAER has reportedly turned down an offer from a Premier League club following his sacking from Manchester United.
But the tactician is now poised for a return to the dugout this summer.
Norwegian outlet VG claim Solskjaer was approached by the unnamed top flight following his exit from Old Trafford in November.
A dismal run saw United lose at home to rivals Liverpool and Manchester City.
But a 4-1 loss to relegation-leaning Watford sealed Solskjaer’s fate and paved the way for Ralf Rangnick to take charge.
Solskjaer is understood to have been approached by multiple clubs from across Europe over the ensuing weeks and months.
And one of them was a Premier League side looking to secure their top-flight status.
Only Everton, Watford, Leeds and Burnley have dropped managers since Solskjaer left United.
Watford were almost sunk while the other three are in a mortal battle for the bottom of the relegation zone.
However, Solskjaer is understood to be looking for a new job this summer as the Red Devils legend is ready for another try at the dugout.

Burnley is still without a permanent manager after hiring Mike Jackson as caretaker.
Meanwhile, Watford could have an opening with Roy Hodgson, who is expected to retire for the second time.
And should either Leeds or Everton go under, they too may be looking for new managers.
Despite the fruitless run towards the end of his managerial career at United, Solskjaer still walked away with a pretty impressive record.
Of 168 games he won 92 and lost 41, the remaining 35 draws.
Solskjaer is the only United boss after Sir Alex Ferguson to secure consecutive top-four finishes.
And he narrowly missed out on a trophy after losing the Europa League final to Villarreal on penalties last season.
