Free agent Freddy Adu will not be offered a contract from AZ Alkmaar after failing to impress in his week-long trial, the team announced on Sunday.

"Freddy Adu has failed to earn a contract at AZ after undergoing a trail at Alkmaar the past week. We wish Freddy success in his quest for a new employer," the team said on their official website.

Adu, 25, has been without a team for eight months after being released from Brazilian side Bahia in November 2013. Since then he has failed in trials with Blackpool in the English Championship and Stabaek in Norway's Tippeligaen.

The Ghana-born player was a highly-touted prodigy when he was selected as the number one overall pick in the 2004 MLS SuperDraft by DC United. However, in his professional career he has played for nine different teams including Real Salt Lake, Benfica, AS Monaco, Belenenses, Philadelphia Union, Aris and Caykur Rizespor.

According to reports, Alkmaar Technical Director Earnie Stewart brought Adu in for a trial as the team was looking to add some playmaking options. But it looks like new head coach Marco van Basten was not impressed with what he saw from the former MLS Cup winner.
