Jonathan Amon leaves Danish club FC Nordsjaelland


Jonathan Amon has endured a frustrating few years with Danish side FC Nordsjaelland and despite getting back to full fitness in 2023, the American attacker will not be remaining with the club.

Amon has left the club by mutual consent, Nordsjaelland announced Wednesday. The 23-year-old had been sidelined since March 2022 following knee surgery and will seek a new opportunity at club level. Nordsjaelland originally extended Amon’s contract through 2022 so that he could continue his rehabilitation in Denmark.

“During his time at FC Nordsjælland, Jonathan has made an impression on all of us both on and off the pitch,” club sporting director Jan Laursen said. “You can clearly feel how many good friends he has made during his now many years both at the academy and with the Superliga squad, and therefore we are also convinced that we will see Jonathan visit us from time to time.

“He is a fantastic guy and an enormously talented player who has shown great courage and a fighter’s heart, both on the pitch and through his rehabilitation,” Laursen added. “And then we must not forget that he has scored some very important goals for us during his time here, just as his enormous speed has always helped us.”

Amon made three appearances for Nordsjaelland’s reserve team during the 2021-22 season, his first action in over 16 months. He scored one goal and added one assist during the 2020-21 campaign with Nordsjaelland before a torn meniscus ended his campaign.

The South Carolina native contributed nine goals and six assists in 41 first team appearances for Nordsjaelland, which helped him earn two senior caps for the U.S. men’s national team in 2018.

Amon is now a free agent and can sign with any club he chooses.


  1. Still has time to resurrect his career as long as he stays relatively injury free. An MLS move could be in the cards and a good destination for him. Still has loads of talent.

    • This feels like a Bobby Wood situation. If he can’t break into the lineup in Denmark, I’m guessing he isn’t the player we remember two knee surgeries ago.
