Freddy Adu still searching for a new team

Report: Adu loan move to Odense falls through

August 18, 2009

U.S. midfielder Freddy Adu continues to be on the search for a new team after a potential move from his current side, Benfica, to Danish side Odense BK collapsed.

According to reports in the Portuguese sports daily Record, Adu's proposed loan to Odense stalled due to an inability between the two teams to reach agreement over the payment of Adu's salary. Benfica wants to loan Adu to a club able to take on his wage bill in entirety, but his salary is higher than Odense is willing to pay.

Adu was informed by new Benfica coach Jorge Jesus earlier this summer that he did not factor into the team's plans for the upcoming season.
