[AMERICANS ABROAD] The Los Angeles Galaxy loaned Chad Barrett to Valerenga of the Norwegian Tippeligaen through the end of its 2012 season.

The 27-year-old forward, who recently trained with Valerenga for a week, will travel to Oslo on Wednesday to join up with his new club. He has appeared in 45 regular-season games for the Galaxy since joining the club in January 2011, scoring eight goals and adding eight assists.
 
Barrett was acquired in a trade from Toronto FC before the start of the 2011 MLS season and went on to finish second on the team with seven regular-season goals and eight in all competitions.

He started each of the club’s first three postseason games last year, but suffered a severe right ankle injury in training ahead of MLS Cup, forcing him to miss the 1-0 win over Houston.
 
This season, Barrett appeared in 18 regular-season games, scoring once, against Philadelphia on July 4, and adding three assists.

For his career, Barrett, who has also played for Chicago and Toronto FC, has 42 goals and 27 assists in 192 career regular season MLS games.
 
Valerenga currently sits in sixth place of the Tippeligaen with 25 points from a 7-6-4 record.
