IKF Goteborg sporting director Mats Gren has released a statement saying he’s ‘very pleased’ to bring in Manchester City midfielder Mix Diskerud.

The Norwegian born player has joined the Swedish club on loan, after a previous spell with them last season.

Speaking to Goteborg’s official website, Gren said on signing the Manchester City owned player: “There have been a lot of details to handle. Now it’s completed we are very pleased to bring in a player at a high level that Mix is ​​on.”

Diskerud only joined Manchester City in the last transfer window from New York City, and at the start of this month he was granted permission to join up with Goteborg at their winter training camp in Spain.

At the time it was unknown whether the US international would be joining up with Goteborg for a second loan spell, but in recent days an agreement was made with Manchester City.

It was unlikely Diskerud would get any senior football for Manchester City this season, and it seems the best option was to loan him out. In fact, if we’re all honest, everyone knows it’s unlikely Mix Diskerud will ever play for Manchester City, making all of this curious transfer business.

The player made 29 appearances for Goteborg last season, scoring 5 goals.
