Columbus Crew

It should come as no surprise to find the Columbus Crew here on this list. The Columbus Crew came really close to signing Mix Diskerud over the summer this year, which would have no doubt helped their chances as the season winded down and in the playoffs as well. Signing Diskerud over the summer would have been a huge move for the Crew, but it simply was not meant to be.

  • The negotiations for the deal between the Columbus Crew and Mix Diskerud did come with some controversy over the summer. It was believed that Diskerud’s father may have had something to do with it, but Columbus Crew head coach, Gregg Berhalter put an end to those rumors.

    After the deal fell through in the last hours and the transfer window for the MLS had come to a close, the Columbus Crew has expressed interest in looking to the winter to go after Diskerud again, this time for an out-of-contract Mix Diskerud. It does not take much convincing to say that Diskerud would be a huge addition to the Crew.

    Diskerud is still very young so he can make an impact for years to come. With the Crew’s rebranding going into full effect next year, as well as the addition of Sierra Leone international, Kei Kamara, the Crew would improve greatly over what was already a stellar side. Add Diskerud and Kamara to the likes of Ethan Finlay and Justin Meram and a host of other good young talents, the Crew would be a huge threat in the East.

    Expect the Crew to be big players for Diskerud as January rolls around.
