D.C. United have acquired midfielder Mohammed Abu from Valerenga Fotball in Norway on loan for the season with an option to purchase, the club announced Tuesday. 

Abu, 28, spent the 2017 and 2018 seasons with Columbus Crew SC before being heading to Norway. He made 24 appearances over those two seasons in Columbus. The defensive midfielder made 37 appearances with Valerenga since joining the club. 

“We’re excited for Abu to join the team and add some important depth in the central midfield position,” DC GM Dave Kasper said in a statement. “He has good defensive instincts and has an impressive passing range. We’re looking forward to adding him to the roster to bolster our squad as we enter the 2020 MLS season.”

Abu also has three appearances with the Ghanaian national team. He adds depth at defensive midfield for the club, behind Week 1 starters Felipe and Junior Moreno
