Adu to train with Rayo Vallecano

FreddyAdu (

Freddy Adu is hoping to make 2012 the biggest year of his career, and he will be kicking off that year in Spain.

Adu is on his way to Spain, where he will train with La Liga side Rayo Vallecano. The training stint will run through the first week of January.

Rayo Vallecano made a play for Adu's services in the summer before Adu settled on MLS, and will now get a chance to have a closer look at the attacking midfielder. The training stint is not a trial though, with the Philadelphia Union approving training opportunity.

Adu is coming off a U.S. Under-23 training camp in Florida, and will look to round into form ahead of another U-23 camp in mid-January.

What do you think of Adu heading to Spain? Like the idea of a La Liga club taking a look at him?

  1. This string is probably dead, but it’s worth pointing out that Sergio Koke, who played with Adu at Aris, is on the Rayo Vallecano roster. Perhaps Koke put in a good word for Freddy?
