Adu_1Reading are rumoured to be eyeing up a move for American teen sensation Freddy Adu. The Royals are hopeful of taking Adu on a six-month loan in January ahead of a £5 million permanent move in the summer.

Many expected Adu to be playing for one of Europe’s top clubs by now when he burst onto the Major League Soccer scene as a 14-year-old, but the big teams have yet to be tempted to make a move. The DC United player has rediscovered his best form recently, though, and MLS are now eager to move him on. Here is video of Adu in action:

    Undeniably talented, but more hype than substance – Premership defenders would murder him.

    he doesn’t belong in England. He’s more suited for the french or spanish leagues. He definitely needs to get out of the USA if he wants to improve.
