Erik Soler wasn't kidding when he said he'd work to find a home for Luke Rodgers.

The English striker, who was denied a visa to ply his trade in the US on Friday, appears to be headed to Lillestrøm in Norway, according to reports in the Norwegian press.

Rodgers had 10 goals and three assists in 25 games across all competitions for RBNY last season.
