Our apologies. We must compose ourselves. What were we saying? Ah, yes. American ex-prodigy Fredua Korantang Adu, more commonly known as Freddy Adu, is reportedly close to joining an actual professional club after being cut from Brazilian club Bahia at the close of last year.

He’s still just 24 years old. Let’s see what happens.
Good luck, Freddy.
