At Rosenborg, he played in 78 games and scored 9 goals. Those figures include 12 appearances in European competition and a trio of goals.

Diskerud is wanted in MLS and in several countries across Europe. He has been linked to the Columbus Crew among other MLS sides in the past, but moves broke down with rumors of problems with Diskerud’s agent and father.

More recently, he’s refuted links with a deal at Liga MX side Club Tijuana, saying that if he signed in North America it would be in the United States.
