Freddy Adu to join FK Jagodina

Freddy Adu's worldwide search for a club is still in progress after AZ Alkmaar did not offer him a contract following his trial there.

Freddy Adu, a player once compared to Pele, is set to join his 10th club in a many seasons after nearing a move to Serbian outfit FK Jagodina.

Adu, 25, whose career has taken him to clubs in Portugal, France, Turkey and Brazil, is set to join Jagodina after failing to earn a contract following a spell training with Championship club Blackpool.

The Ghana-born U.S. attacker, who made his debut for DC United at the age of only 14, went on to win 17 caps for the USMNT. However, he has not played for them since 2011.

Jagodina, who finished third in the Serbian League last season behind Belgrade clubs Red Star and Partizan, announced the deal on their official website and said the formalities were expected to be tied up in the next few days.

Officials said Adu had been impressed by both the club and the city, and was looking forward to his opportunity.

Earlier this summer, Dutch club AZ Alkmaar said Adu would not be offered a contract following a trial.

He had been searching for a new club since being released by Brazilians Bahia in November 2013.

Adu told Dutch broadcaster NOS: "I still believe I can make it as a footballer. I'm only 25 years old. If this adventure doesn't work out... well, there's always something else."
