Freddy Adu has finally landed with a new club.
After arriving in Serbia on Thursday and attending FK Jagodina’s UEFA Europa League qualifying match, a 1-0 defeat to CFR Cluj, Adu signed his contract on Friday and officially became a member of Jagodina’s squad. Adu confirmed the reports of his signing with a picture posted to his Instagram account.
The deal ends Adu’s seven-month spell without a club after he was released by EC Bahia last December. Adu went through unsuccessful trials at Blackpool in January, Stabaek in June, and AZ Alkmaar in July. It’s also Adu’s first time playing in Europe since 2011.
According to reports, Adu chose to sign with Jagodina over clubs in Sweden, India, and AEL Limmasol in Cyprus.
With the Europa League defeat, Jagodina will have to wait until Aug. 9 until their first match, when they kick off the Serbian Super Liga season.
What do you think of this news? Glad to see Adu latch on to a new club in Europe?
