The lengthy winter search for a club has brought U.S. Men’s National Team midfielder Mix Diskerud right back to the same team he most recently played for.
Diskerud has signed a two-year deal with Rosenborg, rejoining the same Norwegian side he spent the second half of 2012 with. A return to Rosenborg has been on the cards for some time, after talks between the young U.S. midfielder and the Portland Timbers broke down due to Portland’s decision that Diskerud was not worth signing to a Designated Player contract (Portland eventually signed Argentine playmaker Diego Valeri).
Diskerud took part in the recent U.S. Men’s National Team camp in January, but didn’t play in the team’s friendly vs. Canada, nor was he called in for the team’s World Cup qualifier vs. Honduras.
What do you think of the news? See Rosenborg being a good long-term fit for Diskerud? Hoping Jurgen Klinsmann gives Diskerud another look during the March World Cup qualifiers, or do you see the Gold Cup being a good place for Diskerud to showcase his talents?
