Mix Diskerud’s loan with IFK Göteborg is set to expire Aug. 27, but the New York City FC midfielder would love to stay with the Swedish club.
“Yes, I’ve said I’d love to stay. I like the guys and the club,” Diskerud said on the football channel, according to www.fotbolltransfers.com.
The 26-year-old Diskerud, who was on the U.S. 2014 World Cup roster, admitted, he did not know the mechanism to extend his loan.
“I do not really know,” he said. “I have one and a half years left on the contract over there, so it’s probably the most up to date with a loan again, but we’ll see. My people are talking to the club here and then on with the club over there. There are three parties. Hopefully, it will be resolved.”
NYCFC loaned Diskerud to IFK Göteborg March 10.
According to the MLS Players Union, Diskerud is on the Major League Soccer books for a guaranteed salary of 772,669.00. Earlier this year, NYCFC bought out his contract.
