HOW ACQUIRED: Signed on permanent transfer from Vejle BK on Feb. 12, 2021
Amundsen was capped regularly at the Danish youth national team levels. He made 59 appearances with Velje and has also featured for German club Eintracht Braunschweig, as well as fellow Danish sides Rosenborg and HB Koge. He is a modern fullback who loves to get forward and provide service into the box, but Amundsen will also get stuck in defensively.
OUTSIDE MLS: The 23-year-old defender has appeared in more than 100 professional matches since making his debut for HB Køge as a 17-year-old. He featured for Køge during a preseason friendly against NYCFC in 2016. His performances in Denmark caught the eye of Norwegian champions Rosenborg BK, who signed him as a 19-year-old in 2018. After making his debut for Rosenborg in the domestic cup, the Dane then joined German club Eintracht Braunschweig on loan before returning to his homeland with Vejle, helping guide the side back to the Danish Superliga for the 2020-2021 season. Amundsen played in Vejle’s first 14 matches of the 2020/21 season, scoring one goal, before completing his transfer to New York City.
INTERNATIONAL: Amundsen represented Denmark across multiple youth international age groups including in the UEFA Euro U-19 Championship qualifiers.
