Freddy Adu's agent refuses to rule out Southampton move

Daily Echo: Freddy Adu Freddy Adu

FREDDY Adu’s agent has refused to close the door on the American superstar making a shock move to St Mary’s.

Rumours have been circulating online that Saints would like to lure the 21-year-old attacking midfielder, once hailed as the new Pele, to the club.

While that seems an extremely unlikely prospect on the face of it, Adu’s representative, Richard Motzkin, has not ruled out the possibility of a switch at some stage down the line.

The Daily Echo contacted Motzkin about the rumours and asked whether Adu, a Benfica player who is on loan at Greek side Aris Thessaloniki, would be interested in a move to Saints.

Although he wouldn’t be definitively drawn on anything, Motzkin indicated the player would welcome a transfer to England.

The Los Angeles-based agent said: “Regarding the Southampton rumour, what I would say is that playing in England always has been a dream of Freddy’s and it is one that he hopes will happen in the future.”

Adu himself said on his Twitter page, when asked about the speculation, that he was not aware of any interest.

But Motzkin’s statement could provide food for thought for Saints and other clubs in this country, many of which have kept an eye on the Ghana-born player for a number of years.

Adu first burst onto the scene as a 14-year-old, when he signed a professional contract with Major League Soccer side DC United, despite Sir Alex Ferguson trying to secure his services for Manchester United.

At the time, he was hailed as the next big thing in world football.

But Adu’s star has faded enormously and he has not played regular football since leaving the American capital in 2006.

A short spell at fellow MLS franchise Real Salt Lake followed, before Portuguese giants Benfica signed him three years ago.

Things have not worked out well there, though, with most of Adu’s time spent enduring a series of unsuccessful loans around clubs in Europe.

Next season is expected to be a defining one for Adu.

If he cannot gain a real foothold in Europe, as he is desperate to do, a return to MLS is on the cards.

Having slipped out of favour in the USA national team – Adu is not going to this summer’s World Cup – he is in need of regular football somewhere.

But, even if it turned out Saints were seriously interested, a drop to League One would be a lot for Adu, who nearly joined Hull last summer, to swallow and might not be much immediate help to his international chances.

However, optimists will say it could at least provide an entry to the English game, regular football and the possibility of challenging for the Premier League within two years.

But any move to England, particularly this summer, could be beset by a number of problems.

Adu’s loan agreement with Aris runs until next summer and the Greek top-flight side also have an option to buy the player.

But given his lack of appearances for them, it seems unlikely at this stage they would take that up.

However, if a club moved for Adu this summer, they would still likely have to negotiate with Aris, as well as Benfica.

Even if a deal could be thrashed out, there is also the thorny issue of securing a work permit for a player that is currently out of favour with his national team.

How can an out of favour player who has down nothing in football, and someone I had not heard of until a few weeks ago, be a superstar.
Does that make Papa Weigo a God

Slow news time story and the players expectations may not match the reality of life in Div 1.- Saints need talented grafters and not potential prima-donnas,
However, in the absense of any news from Saints the paper has to print something to fill the football pages. Roll on the season proper

There is literally no "news" in that article. Just a vague quote from an agent that Adu would consider a move to England at some point - not even answering the question posed to him! From which the reporter manages to create a 567 word article and then gets it published.

A genuine well done to the Echo for actually contacting the agent, but with a quote that means little like that they shouldn't have run a story.

If this guy is a superstar, then Francis Benali is surely a legend (in my opinion, of course...)

Security word is "blue-wait"; that's more of a story in two words than this one! But, as an ex-pat, I welcome ANY story vaguely Saints related on this site, no matter what it is, so I say - carry on, Echo; keep up the good work of finding anything to print on days where nothing is happening!

The thing is Adam, I get every possible update from the Daily Echo in the hope that I will get news on season tickets, new shirts, player transfers, and other news as and when it happens.
Now, when I'm woken up by a text from my Echo Twitter feed, I'm usually pretty excited. When I see "Benfica star open to Saints move", I immediately get up, turn on my computer, and go to the article in anticipation for some good news. When I find out, however, that it is another pointless article written around one vague and hardly suggestive comment from his agent, I'm pretty annoyed that I've allowed myself to think that the Echo only distributes factual information.
This isn't news! Okay, so they managed to speak to his agent; they weren't able to get anything out of him apart from Adu potentially wanting to come to England.

does anyone know what happens to txt alert when you are on holiday overseas. If you receive a text overseas, you pay instead of the sender and pay at the roaming rate. That may mean that you pay high rates for receiving a txt alert while on holiday. I asked via the SUFC website but they just said refer to phone provider.

Full credit for making the call and trying Gordon. Nicola and Pards are good with work permits so getting an overseas player in could be an option. We know Saints are the only club likely to be out there spending... my bet is the players that are keen will already have appointments and a few players will already be scheduled for medicals. I think it's very professional that SFC are taking time over it and saying nothing - all cool.

I can see that on the one hand, the Echo are under pressure to report Saints related stories, but on the other hand, if Saints are trying to tempt a player to the club on the quiet, was it really a good idea to blurt out to all other clubs in England that the player fancies a move here?

We might now have to compete for him, pushing his price up, not to mention his wage demands.

If Saints and the Echo are going to get along, would it not be more sensible to liaise a bit more and be a bit more circumspect with the rumour-mill?

Echo has got to put something on its back page.
If they don't come up with things like this on quiet days, what are they meant to report.
Gladys the tea lady in teabag horror,
or Paint still drying in away teams dressing room, or Pards has Shreddies for breaffast.
Give the paper a break, at least its got us posting, which we haven't been able to do for days now.

The thing is Adam, I get every possible update from the Daily Echo in the hope that I will get news on season tickets, new shirts, player transfers, and other news as and when it happens. Now, when I'm woken up by a text from my Echo Twitter feed, I'm usually pretty excited. When I see "Benfica star open to Saints move", I immediately get up, turn on my computer, and go to the article in anticipation for some good news. When I find out, however, that it is another pointless article written around one vague and hardly suggestive comment from his agent, I'm pretty annoyed that I've allowed myself to think that the Echo only distributes factual information. This isn't news! Okay, so they managed to speak to his agent; they weren't able to get anything out of him apart from Adu potentially wanting to come to England.
thats why i joined the official sites txt alert scheme, just got tired of aticles from the echo that were not that news worthy
Yeah, I suppose that's true. Does it cost though? I'm a little bit cheap!! Ha
does anyone know what happens to txt alert when you are on holiday overseas. If you receive a text overseas, you pay instead of the sender and pay at the roaming rate. That may mean that you pay high rates for receiving a txt alert while on holiday. I asked via the SUFC website but they just said refer to phone provider.
from what i remember i got it for free, and in terms of overseas txt, if you talk to the net work your on, you can arrange an overseas deal, unless you already have overseas credit in your contract, eitherway be careful, as i've had mates get charged extortionate rates from when they went on holiday to Bulgaria

Let us not forget that Pardew has signed big names before.......
Tevez & Macherano!

Adu would be a great addition and one that I think Pardew could work wonders on.

If Adu's agent has not "closed the door" then that makes me believe that we could be onto something.....
Wouldnt they normally come out and say "No comment" or "There is no truth"......
By not ruling him out, you are ruling him in!

Good Work Echo!

This chap Adu has a dreadful record. Benfica ‘star’, yes if you count 129 minutes of football for them in three years as star footie. He goes on loan to clubs and then can’t get a game. Four Four two described him as a player living life in reverse, brilliant as a kid – then getting steadily worse.

I thought our big rivals and neighbours Bournemouth have been signing players!!! Come on guys be patient, AP and the players have to have a holiday although I'm sure he is 'working' whilst laying on the beach somewhere. Would be interested to know whether the season ticket sales are down following the withdrawal of the payment plan.

Andyt66 says...

I've watched him play a couple of times over here in the MLS and I didn't see anything to suggest he has what it takes, even in the English 1st division. Maybe I saw him on off days, but he certainly didn't have much success over here. He was dubbed as a sensation when he was 16, but has failed to live up to it. I think it was unfair to put such expectations on him. He reminds me a bit of Theo Walcott, but on a lesser scale, regarding loads of hype that has amounted to little so far.
I would much prefer to have Antonio and Papa Waigo in the team.

Adu is rubbish. I remember years ago Coventry signed a player called Nii Lamptey- another Ghanian who was going to be the best player in the world. He sadly faded away as quickly as he arrived. I'd rather see us bringing in players like Charlie Austin from Swindon.

Although this story is as credible as a MP's expenses sheet, I still had to check this Adu out on youtube. Look pretty tasty, more likely to put bums on seats that Andrew Surman at least.

He justs need the rough edges sorted out by Pardew, much as he did with Antonio & Waigo last year.

Adu was massive news in football when he signed a mega deal with Nike a few years back when in his early teens.

He played in the world cup 4 years ago and was garbage, couldn't keep the ball and an awful first touch.

He always got amazing in champo though!

I say sign him up!
