Freddy Adu's European escapade has taken another turn as the American attacking midfielder has joined Turkish club Rizespor on loan until the end of the season.
Terms were agreed upon earlier Monday between the Turkish 1. League club and Adu's parent club Benfica.
The loan agreement ends months of speculation of where Adu might end up following his failed loan at Greek club Aris.
The Maryland native had trialed last fall with Swiss club FC Sion plus had spent time training in Denmark with Randers and in Germany with 2. Bundesliga club FC Ingolstadt.
Rizespor currently sit in third place in Turkey's second flight just two points behind leaders Orduspor and Samsunspor.
The top two from the 1. League receive automatic promotion to the Turkish Super League.
"Freddy Adu is on loan until May 31, 2011," confirmed Rizespor Club Co-Dierctor Timur Yeni to YA.
Adu will hope to make his debut with Rizespor on Saturday versus Denizlispor.
