Bahia won't renew Freddy Adu

Brazilian league club Bahia said it won't renew the contract of a struggling Freddy Adu in December and Adu's agent, Richard Motzkin, confirmed Thursday Adu's contract is up in December.

"He hasn’t played because we understand that there are other players who are superior to him and he has had so many opportunities," Bahia sporting director Anderson Barros told Lance!Net. "When his contract is ended he can go on with his life. He will be free to procure another club."

The 24-year-old midfielder has seen little playing time with Bahia since moving to Brazil in an April transfer with the Philadelphia Union for Jose Kleberson.

Bahia is Adu's ninth club since he burst onto the soccer scene as a 15-year-old prodigy. He has seen limited playing time with Bahia.
