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."

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
