New York City F.C. confirm Jeb Brovsky move to Strømsgodset


NEW YORK, NY – New York City FC defender Jeb Brovsky has found a temporary home.

NYCFC announced that they have loaned Brovsky to a familiar trade partner in Strømsgodset Toppfotball of the Norwegian Tippeligaen through December of this year.

“I am thrilled that Jeb will have the opportunity to play for such a strong team while we continue to build our club,” said New York City FC Head Coach Jason Kreis. “As we sign more players to our roster in the coming months, we want our team to be able to continue to play soccer and keep their skills and conditioning at the highest level.

“Strømsgodset will be a rewarding experience for Jeb and will ensure that he is ready for action come our preseason.”

EOS first reported the possible loan move late Sunday evening.

“We are very excited to welcome Jeb to our team for the next six months,” said Sporting Director of Strømsgodset, Jostein Flo. “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.”

The 25-year-old Lakewood, Colorado native is a three year veteran of MLS, plying his trade for both the Montreal Impact and Vancouver Whitecaps. He is a 2011 MLS SuperDraft pick (19th overall) who immediately played a starting role for the first year Whitecaps. He continued to play major minutes with the Montreal Impact, becoming a fan favorite not only for his work on the field, but his charitable time off of it as well. He was named a finalist for the 2013 MLS W.O.R.K.S. Humanitarian of the Year award while with Montreal.

Strømsgodset is currently in season. Their campaign runs through November 9th, with two scheduled UEFA Champions League qualifiers already on the docket.

Brovsky joins Manchester City’s Bismark Adjei-Boateng as the second City Football Group loanee to the club.
