Freddy Adu Offered Blackpool Trials

The once-touted forward, who was released by Brazilian side Bahia, is on trials with the Championship outfit hoping for a deal once he impresses

Ghanaian-born American striker Freddy Adu is on trials with English Championship side Blackpool.

The former Monaco and Sporting Lisbon forward is without a club after being released by Brazilian club Bahia.

Adu is likely to feature for the Sea-siders against their highly-rated youth team tomorrow behind close-doors.

Caretaker boss Barry Ferguson will critically assess him and make his decision whether to give him a contract or otherwise.

“Freddy is just over to train and I’m going to have a look at him. That’s as far as it goes at the moment,” Ferguson told the Blackpool Gazette. “He’s not played in two months and he’s just come back from Brazil. We’ll see how he does in training.”
