CHAD WINGER - Tuesday, August 11, 2009
Benfica attacker Freddy Adu is reportedly on the verge of joining Odense BK in Denmark on a one-year loan.
Adu, 20, who recently denied a reported move back to FC Dallas in MLS, is now squarely in the sights of the Europa League participants.
"Nothing is done yet," the US international told YA. "It's a proposed loan deal."
"I've got to go there and finish everything so I'll keep you updated."
However, the club who finished second in 2008/09 is remaining coy.
"We know who the player is and we have been following him," Odense Communications Director Peter Hørlüch told YA. "For the moment we cannot say anything more."
Denmark has quickly become one of the major destinations for Americans, with Benny Feilhaber being the most notable US players in the country, resurrecting his career at AGF Aarhus alongside countryman Jeremiah White.
Should Adu join the Danes, it would mark the second consecutive year in which he spent away from Portugal, following last season's forgettable stint at AS Monaco.
