Freddy Adu: Will not be offered terms by Blackpool

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."

Rodgers: Sterling can be striker

expect Pulis to have a nice Christmas dinner with his family- probably all sitting around the table wearing Christmas themed baseball caps, before he gets the call. Realistically he could end up at any number of clubs, it'll be interesting to see which club folds first.

s a Liverpool fan, I personally hate Palace. My pick would probably be Arsenal, which is funny because it seems the vast majority of their own fans don't even like them right now.
