Freddy Adu "excited" at Bahia loan
New Bahia loan signing Freddy Adu has taken to Twitter to express his excitement at joining the Brazilian side for the 2013 season.
Ghana born Adu, 23, was once the youngest player in MLS history and considered one of the brightest young stars in world football.
After spells with Benfica and Monaco, though, it has not worked out quite as expected for the "American Pelé".
He will now join North-Eastern side Bahia for the coming season, with 2002 World Cup winner Kléberson heading to Philadelphia Union in a loan exchange.
Adu tweeted on Sunday morning: "Very excited for this new chapter. Thanks for all the good luck wishes and the continuous support!"

Adu will no doubt hope that his spell in Brazilian football will boost his chances of international selection when the World Cup is held in the country next year.
