Freddy Adu signs one-year deal with Finnish club Kuopion Palloseura

Saturday March 28th, 2015

Freddy Adu has signed a one-year contract with Kuopion Palloseura, the club announced on Saturday. Kuopion Palloseura competes in the Veikkausliiga, the top league in Finland.

Adu, 25, made his professional debut as a 14-year-old with D.C. United of Major League Soccer. He has since had stints with a number of clubs in several countries, including Benfica in Portugal and the Philadelphia Union of MLS.

Last year Adu trained with English club Blackpool but was not offered a contract. The U.S. international signed with Serbia's FK Jagodina last July and made one appearance as a substitute, but his stint with the club ended in December.

Adu has not played for the U.S. men's national team since the 2011 CONCACAF Gold Cup.
