Mix Diskerud near loan to Sweden's IFK Goteborg after NYCFC exit - source

U.S. international Mix Diskerud is close to securing a loan to Swedish side IFK Goteborg, with a Major League Soccer source telling ESPN FC that the deal could be completed in the next 24-48 hours.

Swedish outlet Expressen was the first to report the link between Diskerud and Goteborg.

The source said the loan, if completed, would provide "minor salary relief only" to Diskerud's former club, New York City FC, which would still be responsible for paying the bulk of the player's wages.

According to the MLS Players' Union, Diskerud make a base salary of $761,250 last season. The sourced indicated that the loan is only slated to last through August.

If the deal is completed, it will allow Diskerud, 26, to begin to rebuild his career, and put his highly disappointing spell in New York behind him. He was signed by NYCFC just prior to the 2015 campaign, and made 27 appearances for the club under then-manager Jason Kreis, scoring three goals -- including the team's first-ever -- and adding one assist.

Mix Diskerud fell out of favor at NYCFC after Patrick Vieira was hired.

But following Kreis' firing at the conclusion of the 2015 season, and the subsequent hiring of Patrick Vieira, Diskerud fell out of favor in New York. He made just 12 league appearances in 2016, none after last June, scoring just one goal and adding two assists.

With Vieira making it clear that Diskerud was no longer in his plans, the player had his contract bought out last week.

During this time, Diskerud's prospects with the U.S. national team dwindled as well. The last of his 36 appearances came as a substitute on Oct. 13, 2015, in a 1-0 loss to Costa Rica.

Before his time with New York City FC, Diskerud played with Norwegian sides Stabaek and Rosenborg, as well as Belgian side Gent.
