New York City FC is set to begin play in MLS next season and today announced that its American defender Jeb Brovsky will be loaned to Norwegian champions Stromgodset.
Brovsky, 25, was most recently with Montreal but was traded last month to NYCFC. In order to get him games, the new MLS club has loaned him to Stromgodset for the remainder of 2014. In addition to helping the club in Tippeligaen games, Brovsky will also have the opportunity to play in UEFA Champions League qualifiers.
"We are very excited to welcome Jeb to our team for the next six months. Not only is Jeb a versatile player who can play as a defender and a midfielder. He's a great addition to our squad, and we know he will make an impact both on and off the field during his time at Strømsgodset," said Sporting Director of Strømsgodset, Jostein Flo.
Brovsky is a native of Colorado who joined MLS in 2011 after a collegiate career at Notre Dame. That year he was drafted with the 19th pick in the SuperDraft by Vancouver. From 2012-2014 he played for Montreal before being traded to New York.
