Freddy Adu is set to become the latest young Major League Soccer star to head to Europe for some extra off-season training, though he will be the first to be heading to Spain to do so. Adu will be joining Spanish side Rayo Vallecano for a two-week training stint, sources told FOX Soccer on Tuesday. Adu, 22, joined the Philadelphia Union last summer, and just recently completed a training camp with the U.S. Under-23 national team. He will be spending time with a Vallecano side that is currently sitting in 16th place in the Spanish First Division. Rayo Vallecano is also a club that had been in talks with Adu about signing him last summer before Adu settled on a return to MLS. The upcoming stint with Vallecano is not a trial though. Adu joins Brek Shea (Arsenal), Juan Agudelo (Liverpool, Stuttgart), Stefan Frei (Liverpool), Zac MacMath (Everton) and Tim Ream (West Brom), among others, to spend time training with European clubs this winter.
