Described as a calm and intelligent centre back with leading abilities,[1] Rosted began his career in native Norway and made the move to Belgian Gent in January 2018 before making the move to Brøndby one-and-a-half year later.

Club careerEdit

Early careerEdit

Rosted joined Sarpsborg 08 from Kjelsås ahead of the 2015 season,[2] and made his first-tier debut in September 2015 against Odds BK.

GentEdit

On 7 January 2018, Rosted signed a three-and-a-half-year deal with Belgian First Division A side Gent. On 24 January, he made his Gent debut against Royal Antwerp in the First Division A as a substitute in a 1–1 draw away, playing the last 45 minutes in place of Nana Asare. He finished the 2017–18 season with 8 appearances for the club.

The following season Rosted established himself as a starter in the Gent first team, playing 38 matches and scoring 6 goals in all competitions. However, towards the end of the season he saw less playing time, as Timothy Derijck was preferred in the centre of defense.

BrøndbyEdit

On 27 August 2019, Rosted moved to Denmark to join Superliga club Brøndby IF on a four-year deal for an undisclosed fee.[3][4]

International careerEdit

In 2017, he was called up to the Norwegian national team for the first time in his career, as a replacement for injured Tore Reginiussen before the friendly match against Sweden on 13 June. He played his first international match on 26 March 2018 in a friendly against Albania, scoring the only goal in a 1–0 win. He had been substituted in for Håvardt Nordtveit in the 63rd minute.
