The USA international had arrived in England hoping to find a new employer following his release by Philadelphia Union.

Blackpool boss Barry Ferguson was prepared to offer him a window in which to impress, with Adu spending three weeks with the Seasiders.

He figured in two behind-closed-doors fixtures during that time, but has not done enough to earn a permanent deal.

The door at Bloomfield Road has not been completely closed on Adu, though, with the 24-year-old having been granted permission to continue working on his fitness at the Championship club.

Ferguson told the Blackpool Gazette: "There is nothing happened with Freddy.

"He's come in and worked hard with us. He is a great lad but I'm more than happy with what I've got. I have a strong squad."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
