Nothing has been announced yet in the States, but over in Trondheim the free transfer of Jorgen Skjelvik to the Galaxy looks like a done deal.

Following their Europa League tie vs. Vardar, Rosenborg revealed his impending departure to Los Angeles.

Kåre Ingebrigtsen loses one of his biggest continuity carriers in Jørgen Skjelvik. The next season goes without the carrier boy who leaves Trondheim in favor of Los Angeles and MLS club LA Galaxy.

Just after the end of the match in Skopje, Skjelvik and Milan Jevtovi mnc were thanked in the wardrobe. Before leaving Trondheim, Kåre repeated some of what was said the previous night to RBK.no.

"Jørgen has been here for all of my time. He has been a continuity and culture carrier. Brilliant on and off the track and an important contributor to all we have managed to achieve. We wish Jørgen a lot of luck. We are definitely separated as friends.

"It's a pity we must let him go, but I understand that players want to experience other things.

Kare also added:

"We might hope that one day we will see Jørgen back in RBK, but they soon find out in the LA Galaxy that they have gotten a very good football player, so I think it will not happen for many years.

At this point, we’re just waiting for an official announcement.
