Mix Diskerud turns down designated player offer from MLS to play in Mexico – report

Mix Diskerud has reportedly made his decision on where he will be playing his football for the next chapter in his career, but he’s chosen to play in Liga MX with Club Tijuana rather than accepting a designated player contract to play in Major League Soccer.

That’s according to Raul Guzman who tweeted that Club Tijuana “are about to announce the signing of Mix Diskerud” and he went on to state that “I think this has to be considered one of the best signings of the winter”.

Diskerud’s current contract with Norwegian club Rosenborg is set to expire this month and that means he can sign a pre-contract agreement with his next club now.

Many hoped, and expected that the USMNT midfielder would make the move to MLS to carry on his progression but his choice to play in Mexico is a disappointing blow for the league.

Though playing in Liga MX will be the highest level that Diskerud has played at and that is still good for his progression as a player.

He will join up with fellow Americans Joe Corona, Greg Garza and Paul Arriola by moving to Tijuana in a move that will see him play club football outside of Europe for the first time in his career.

Is Club Tijuana a good move for Mix Diskerud?
