TRANSFER TRACKER STATUS: Signing
The 24-year-old former Norwegian youth international joins through the 2026 MLS season with a club option for 2027.
"We are excited to bring Tomas to St. Louis after a lot of interest from European and MLS teams," sporting director Lutz Pfannenstiel said in a press release.
"He comes to our team with experience at a high level, including playing in both Champions League and Europa League matches this season. Along with his experience, he is well-rounded in both the attacking and defending phases."
Totland has spent his professional career exclusively in Scandinavia, tallying 14g/19a in 180 matches across all competitions. That stretch includes 11 games in the Europa League and Champions League, as well as the 2022 Allsvenskan title.
Totland joins a St. Louis CITY defense anchored by reigning Allstate MLS Goalkeeper of the Year Roman Bürki and center back Tim Parker – who both appeared on the 2023 MLS Best XI presented by Continental Tire. Primarily a right back who can also play up a line, Totland figures to compete for minutes with incumbent starter Jake Nerwinski.
St. Louis CITY hope to build off a record-setting expansion season, in which they earned the Western Conference's No. 1 seed and surpassed all expectations. But their Audi MLS Cup Playoffs debut ran short, getting swept by Midwest rival Sporting Kansas City in Round One.
