Norway's Rosenborg signs American Mix Diskerud


OSLO, Norway (AP) - Norwegian club Rosenborg says it has signed Mikkel Diskerud for the rest of the year.

The 21 year-old Norwegian-born American says it is "an honor" to play for the club.

Rosenborg sporting director Erik Hoftun told a Norwegian news agency they had hoped the midfielder's contract would have been longer, but Diskerud only signed until the end of the year to get "acquainted" with the team.

Diskerud was presented by Rosenborg late Thursday. He has previously played for Stabaek Baerum of Norway and Belgium's KAA Gent.

Called "Mix" instead of Mikkel, Diskerud has an American mother and a Norwegian father and has two caps with the United States.
