The right back had a great start in 2004 with good performances in the Champions League, but was then put back because of a knee injury, which required several surgeries. This season he has only been in the starting line-up in the two cup matches against Kvik and Steinkjer. Because of this, Rosenborg have decided to sell the American.
"Robbie needs to play football. He has been with us for two years almost without playing, and needs to swop to a club where he can play every weekend," coach Per-Mathias Høgmo told rosenborg.info.
Russell has already gone to Denmark, and the transfer will be settled this week.
