Freddy Adu leaving Serbian club after six-month, one-game stint

Freddy Adu is leaving Serbia's Jagodina after appearing in just one game.

The 25-year-old attacker said Monday on Twitter that he's departing following the expiration of his deal.

Adu tweets: "Easy guys I signed a 6 month contract. And it's done now. I didn't get 'released'. Knew I was leaving a few months ago."

Adu made his only appearance when he entered late in the second half in a cup match against second-tier Borca on Sept. 24.

A member of the 2008 U.S. Olympic team, Adu has struggled since making his debut at age 14 for D.C. United in 2004, the youngest player in Major League Soccer history. He was traded to Real Salt Lake in December 2006, sold to Benfica in July 2007, loaned to Monaco for 2008-09, loaned to Portugal's Belenenses for 2009-10, loaned to Greece's Aris in January 2010 and loaned to Turkey's Caykur Rizespor in February 2011.

He joined MLS' Philadelphia Union in August 2011, then went to Brazil's Bahia in April 2013. He was released in November and had trials England's Blackpool, Norway's Stabaek and the Netherlands' AZ Alkmaar before signing with Jagodina.
