Former Colorado Rapids defender Connor Tobin has signed a two-year contract with Norway's Nybergsund IL-Trysil. Tobin moves to Nybersgund after spending last year in England with Sheffield United.

The youngster joins fellow American, striker Joseph Lapira, at the Norwegian club.

"I am tremendously grateful for the opportunity to prove myself at the professional level here at Nybergsund," Tobin told the University of Vermont website. "It is a great challenge, but I am very excited about playing over here in Europe. I would like to thank all those at UVM who have helped me get to this point, especially my coaches and teammates."
