, whose national team career nosedived after he moved to MLS's New York City FC, has been signed by English Premier League leader Manchester City to a contract for four and a half
years. The move was not announced by Manchester City but by Manchester-based apparel company Umbro.
Diskerud, 27, played two seasons at NYCFC but was unwanted by head coach Patrick Vieira
and loaned to IFK Goteborg for the 2017 season. He scored five times in 29 Allsvenskan
games for IFK, which finished 10th in the Swedish league.
The Norwegian-bred Diskerud played 38 times for the USA. His last game came in the disastrous 2-0 loss at Guatemala in a World
Cup qualifier played in March 2016 when he started in midfield.
Both Manchester City and NYCFC are owned by the City Football Group. Diskerud is not expected to play for Manchester City
or even a City Football Group team.
