Adu, 20, wrote on his Twitter feed this week to say he was choosing between offers from Aris and Hull but later said his preference was to secure regular first-team football to aid his development, and he has now sealed a deal to the Greek club.

The USA international wrote on Twitter: "Alright guys done deal. Signed an 18-month loan deal with Aris FC. A lot of thought and research went into this. Thanks for the support."

A statement on the club's website read: "Aris FC announces the agreement with the American soccer player Freddy Adu from Benfica on a loan until [June 2011 with] an option [to] buy."
