Diskerud's new deal means his three year stint with Manchester City comes to end, though it was an unusual one. He spent the entirety of his time on the books at City on loan, spending time in Sweden and South Korea. Most recently, Diskerud was on loan at Sweden's Helsingborg, scoring two goals in 28 games.
Diskerud was part of NYCFC's inaugural season and scored the team's first ever MLS goal. He was there for two seasons, scoring four goals in 39 games. Diskerud also played for the USMNT from 2010 to 2016, and went to the 2014 World Cup in Brazil but did not play.
