[TRANSFER WATCH: Americans Abroad] Jeb Brovsky, whom New York City FC acquired from the Montreal Impact as its second signing, will join Norwegian champion Stromsgodset on loan through December 2014 and then return to NYCFC as it prepares for its inaugural MLS season in 2015.
“I am thrilled that Jeb will have the opportunity to play for such a strong team while we continue to build our club,” said New York City FC head coach Jason Kreis in a statement. “As we sign more players to our roster in the coming months, we want our team to be able to continue to play soccer and keep their skills and conditioning at the highest level. Stromsgodset will be a rewarding experience for Jeb and will ensure that he is ready for action come our preseason.”
Stromsgodset won its second league title in 2013. It will play Romanian champion Steaua Bucharest in the second qualifying round of the UEFA Champions League that will be held July 15-16 and July 22-23.
The 25-year-old Brovsky has played 85 games in four MLS seasons with Vancouver and Montreal.
