Dave Jones has Neil Moss as back-up to his Welsh international keeper but he is searching for another shot-stopper and Sogndal youngster Skjeldestad fits the bill.
The Norwegian Under-21 international will play for the reserves against Crystal Palace on Tuesday and he is staying long enough with the club to also participate in the clash against Wimbledon`s second-string the following week.
The 21-year-old will be with The Saints until January 29 when manager Jones will have to take a decision on whether to sign him on a permanent basis.
Skjeldestad was an ever-present during the 1998 season, although he conceded 17 goals in the final three matches of the campaign as Sogndal collapsed spectacularly and were relegated from the top flight. However, a consolidatory term in the Norwegian First Division saw the club finish fifth in 1999.
