American Exports: Freddy Adu signs with Finnish club KuPS

Joining his 11th club in 11 years, Freddy Adu has signed with Kuopion Palloseura (KuPS) of the Finnish Veikkausliiga, the country's top flight, the club announced on Saturday.

The deal is for one year and will begin as soon as Adu completes his medical.

KuPS are located in Kuopio, a city in central Finland, roughly 250 miles north of Helsinki. They finished 7th in the league last season. 

Adu will not be the only American on the KuPS squad. Also signed is former New England Revolution defender Stephen McCarthy, as well as Canadian midfielder Charlie Trafford, who was named KuPS Player of the Year in 2014. Trafford spent some time in the Vancouver Whitecaps academy.

Adu, 25, originally turned professional when he was 14, signing with D.C. United. He has since played for Real Salt Lake and the Philadelphia Union in MLS, as well as having stints in Portugal, France, Greece, Turkey, and Brazil. He was with Serbian Superliga club FK Jagodina in 2014, but did not make a league appearance; he did feature in a cup match for the Blues. 

The Finnish league begins play on April 12, when KuPS travel to Ilves.
