Freddy Adu on trial with Portland Timbers

The former prodigy will look to see his first MLS action since leaving the Philadelphia Union in 2012.

Former U.S. national team midfielder Freddy Adu has resurfaced in a preseason trial with the Portland Timbers. 

The news was first reported by Stumptown Footy and was then confirmed by Goal's Ives Galarcep. 

Adu, 27, most recently played for the Tampa Bay Rowdies of NASL (the club has since moved to USL). After making just 13 regular season appearances over two seasons with the Rowdies, Adu's contract was not renewed following the 2016 season. 

The one-time prodigy will be reunited with Timbers head coach Caleb Porter, who coached Adu on the USA U-23 team during its unsuccessful qualifying attempt for the 2012 London Olympics. 

After being drafted first overall in the 2004 MLS SuperDraft at age 14, Adu has played for 12 clubs in 13 years.
