Toronto FC transfer Jayden Nelson to Rosenborg BK in Norway
Toronto FC announced Wednesday that the club has sold Canadian winger Jayden Nelson to Rosenborg BK of the Eliteserien in Norway for an undisclosed fee.
Nelson, 20, joined the Reds out of the TFC Academy as a Homegrown Player in January of 2020 and went on to make 50 appearances across all competitions – both as a winger and, for much of 2022, as a midfielder. The 4-times capped Canadian international heads to Rosenborg to play outside of Toronto for the first time in his professional career.
"It has been a pleasure to work with Jayden and see his progress here at his hometown club," said Toronto FC head coach and sporting director Bob Bradley. "We knew Jayden always had the ambition to play in Europe, and when the right opportunity presented itself, we worked diligently with the player to secure the move. Jayden joined us as a Homegrown Player, and we are excited for him to take the next step in his professional journey."
Nelson joins fellow Canadian internationals Alistair Johnston, Ismaël Koné and Jayde Riviere in joining European outfits in 2023 out of North America.
