In April 2013 he signed his first contract with Brann, due after the 2013 season, after 7 years as a youth player. Gjesdal became a first team regular due to injuries on fellow centre backs Markus Jonsson and Simen Wangberg, and was called up to the national under-21 team. He debuted on 5 June as a substitute in a friendly match against Finland. On October 3, 2013 he signed a contract keeping him with Brann until the end of the 2015 season. Before the last game of the 2013 season against Tromsø, he was named Young Player of the Year by the supporters. Despite this, on March 12, 2014 it was announced that Gjesdal would leave on a four-month-long loan to Adeccoligaen club Nest-Sotra.
In the summer 2014, Gjesdal signed a 2 1⁄2-year contract with Tromsø.
