Hull City Preparing Surprise Bid For Freddy Adu

freddy-adu-man-unitedHull City manager Phil Brown is preparing a surprise bid for US international and Benfica player Freddy Adu, according to the News Of The World.

Benfica would accept a bid of £1.5m for Adu. The American striker is currently on loan at Belenenses, a fellow Portugese side but Adu has only made a handful of appearances there. A move to Hull City in the January transfer window would provide Adu with a chance of helping Hull City avoid relegation as well as giving him an opportunity to impress US coach Bob Bradley and his staff, to make it more likely he may make this summer’s World Cup squad.

If Adu moves to Hull City on loan, he’ll be competing for a starting position alongside fellow American Jozy Altidore. Adu can play striker or attacking midfielder.

Adu is no stranger to English football. In November 2006, Adu went on a two week trial with Manchester United. Because he didn’t have a work permit, he ended up training with the team but he reportedly didn’t make much of an impression on Sir Alex Ferguson at the time.

What do you think? Should Freddy Adu join Hull City? Will he get into the starting eleven? Will it be a wise move for Phil Brown? Click the comments link below and share your opinion.
