US midfielder Mix Diskerud stays with Norway club

American midfielder Mix Diskerud has agreed to two-year contract

with Norway’s Rosenborg.

He joined Rosenborg in August with a half-season contract after

playing for Norway’s Stabaek and Belgium’s Ghent. He scored two

goals in 18 appearances for Trondheim-based Rosenborg, which

announced the deal Tuesday.

Born in Oslo to an American mother and a Norwegian father, the

22-year-old Diskerud has made three appearances for the U.S.

national team. He scored the tying goal in injury time during a

November exhibition at Russia. He was part of the American under-23

team that failed to qualify for the London Olympics.
