Freddy Adu in search of a new club

The former Benfica player is without a team now after Bahia released him and currently training with Athletes' Performance in Arizona

Ghanaian-born American international Freddy Adu is in search of a new club as he keeps training with Athletes' Performance in Arizona.

Goal Ghana can reveal that the 24-year-old former DC United and Real Salt Lake star is without a club after his release from Brazilian outfit Bahia this month. Adu will now spend time keeping fit and honing his skills at the refuge for professional and elite athletes.

Former IMG Academy chief Trevor Moawad, who has a new role with AP, confirmed that Adu will come to Arizona as he goes about sorting out the next phase of his career.

“With Freddy, it’s a tougher stretch for him right now,” Moawad told the Seattle Times. “He’s out of contract and trying to figure out what he’s going to do next. I think he’ll probably come out to Arizona and train, unless he can get signed somewhere.”

Moawad added: “Obviously the transfer window will not matter for Freddy because he’s not with a team, so he can sign whenever if someone will give him a shot.”

Adu has failed to live up to the huge billing that surrounded him when he was a teenager. He had previously played for Benfica, AS Monaco and Philadelphia Union.
