New York City FC signs USMNT midfielder Mix Diskerud

New York City FC announced Tuesday morning the signing of USMNT midfielder Mix Diskerud on a free transfer, using their number one position in the Allocation Ranking.

Capped 25 times for his country, Mix joins from Norwegian side Rosenborg where he spent three seasons.

NYCFC Jason Kreis told reporters that the club is using allocation money to buy down Diskerud’s contract in order to not take up its third Designated Player slot.

“New York City FC have made my wish as an American a reality by giving me the opportunity to play and live in the US,” Diskerud said in the NYCFC release.

“Everybody I have spoken to on the men’s national team about Jason Kreis has spoken highly of him to me. I felt exactly the same way after meeting him. I’m sure he will help me to develop my game, to succeed with our team here in New York and to stay involved with the national team. Coming to play for New York City FC was an easy decision for me.”
