    Vegard Forren having a medical for Liverpool tomorrow. Scandinavian centre halves ftw!
    Oh yeah! Man that's great!

    I heard that he: was discovered by Molde FK when they met KIL/Hemne in the first round of the Norwegian football cup. KIL/Hemne surprisingly won the match 3-1, with Forren and two other young players impressing highly. They were afterwards invited to trial for Molde in a junior tournament.[1] Shortly after Forren signed a 5 year deal with Molde.[2] He took Tippeligaen with storm and European clubs as A.C. Milan, Newcastle,[3] Liverpool[4] and Hoffenheim,[5] have watched him playing for Molde FK. But Forren said that he will stay in Molde FK for a while, even though his dream is to play in a bigger European league one time. He said that he was still young and have a long career in front of him. He was also linked with Lazio[6] and F.C. Copenhagen.[7]

    Internationally he looks a good unas well, did you know that: Forren made his debut for Norway U21 in the match against Ukraine U21 on 26 March 2008.[9] He played a total of 14 matches for the under-21 team, scoring three goals, and was later capped twice for the under-23 team.[10]

    Forren made his debut for Norway in the 2012 King's Cup match against Thailand on 18 January 2012.[11] He also played against South Korea a few days later, but had to wait to October 2012 for his first competitive match when he started the match against Switzerland,[12] and has since played alongside Brede Hangeland in Norway's central defence.[13]
