Adu to Philly

Yup, if Ives is to believed, and he's usually reluctant to post anything until it's a done deal, Adu is coming back stateside and checking some of his oversized attitude to try to re-establish himself as a regular on the USMNT under Klinsmann.

How, you ask?

Well, he's going to be unveiled as a new DP signing in the next few hours for the Philly Union.

After spending time bouncing around Europe and failing to establish himself on a 1st team in Portugal, Switzerland, Greece and Turkey on a regular basis over the last four years, Adu is being picked up by his former coach, Peter Nowak, from his days with DC. Adu had previously been linked with Chivas, but the Mexican owners and other assorted management weren't willing to pay DP money to sign him, so expect this deal to be a significant pay cut with the idea that Adu re-establishes himself on the USMNT in the ever shrinking chances he'll be on the OMC depth chart.

Only time will tell, but history is not in his favor.
