No, I am not suggesting that Mikkel Diskerud is a pyromaniac. Or even that he loves old school Def Leppard. It is just time to shed a little (but not all) light on the chase scene for his free agent services.
There will be a full MLS report on this probably tomorrow, but for now I can now confirm he currently has interest from clubs in MLS, Greece, Russia, Ukraine and two western European countries. Given my usual beat, past history with the player and his style, you can surely guess one of those places without trying. The other will stay in a vest pocket for now.
This is all, naturally, on top of extension talks with Rosenborg and the standing offers from Qatar.
