KENYA BROWN - Friday, July 25, 2014
It looks like Freddy Adu has found himself a new team as the former prodigy is near to signing with Serbian SuperLiga side FK Jagodina, according to reports.

"FK Jagodina is negotiating with former American youth phenom Freddy Adu," according the Serbian Football Twitter page.

The Ghana-born midfielder has been looking for a new team since being released from Brazilian side Bahia in November 2013. Since that time he has been on trials with Blackpool, Stabaek and AZ Alkmaar, but failed to impress the coaching staff.

Jagodina, which finished third in the league last season, is in the qualifying stages of the Europa League and those same reports say the 25-year-old will attend the team's second leg qualifying game against Romanian side CFR Cluj on Thursday before putting pen to paper over the weekend.

Apparently Adu has chosen the Serbian team over offers from Sweden, Cyprus and India.

The former number overall pick in the 2004 MLS SuperDraft last played in Europe in 2011 with Caykur Rizespor in Turkey's second division on a loan deal from Portuguese side Benfica.

Adu is looking to restart his career after a torrid few months in which he came into a contract dispute with the Philadelphia Union, spelling the end of his time in Major League Soccer.

I would hope Freddy can succeed at this level and eventually get transferred to a bigger named club in Europe. If he could become relevant again with the USMNT, he could replace Wondo who has played his last sorry game for the USA. Blindfolded and on his back side he finishes that sitter Wondo missed against Belgium.

Good for you Freddy. Good luck and work hard. Prove all the neigh sayers wrong.

My son misread the title as "Adu lands in Siberia." I didn't bother to correct him.
