Americans Abroad

Riding the bench in Greece, Adu tries to find home in Denmark.

By Robert Wagman (in Washington, D.C.)

(Sunday, November 28, 2010) -- American midfielder Freddy Adu's travels from club to club, trying to find someplace where he can play, might now take him from Greece to Denmark in January when the next transfer window opens.

Adu has been under contract with Benfica of Portugal since 2007, but he is now on his third consecutive loan over the last three years. For the second half of the 2009-10 season and the current campaign, he has been on loan to Aris Thessaloniki FC in Greece.

After a change of coaches last season, Adu apparently has worn out his welcome at Aris, first finding himself moved to the bench and then into the stands. Now, he is reportedly in Denmark training with Randers of the top-tier Superliga for a possible winter move after the transfer window opens.

According to club statements to the media, Adu arrived in poor physical condition so he has been working with the team's reserves. Last Sunday night, he went 90 minutes in a 4-0 loss to Viborg, twice hitting the woodwork.

If Randers wants to add Adu, it will have to strike a deal with Benfica to either fashion a new loan or pay a transfer fee. There is also the possibility that the Portuguese club could release Adu from his contract allowing him to immediately move to Denmark as a free transfer, but Benfica has said in the past it wants to try to recoup some of the millions it spent acquiring Adu.
