[AMERICANS ABROAD] Freddy Adu is headed to Greek club Aris for an 18-month loan from Benfica -- his third loan move of the last year. He joins fellow American Eddie Johnson, on loan until the end of the season from Fulham.

Adu's move follows the end of his loan with Belenenses. He had been on loan to French club Monaco.

Aris' agreement with Benfica includes an option of buy.

Adu and Johnson join a team heavily by foreign players. Only six of the 27 players on Aris' roster are Greek.

Besides the United States, nine other countries are represented on the Aris' roster: Argentina (7), Spain (3), Brazil (3), Albania (1), Bolivia (1), France (1), Ireland (1), Slovakia (1) and Tunisia (1).

Aris is coached by Argentine veteran Hector Cuper, who took over in November. He is best known for taking Valencia to consecutive Champions League finals in 2000 and 2001.

Cuper, 53, replaced outgoing coach Iomar Mazinho in November. He most recently served as Georgia's national team coach.

Aris is fourth in the 16-team Super League after 16 games.

ADU'S CLUBS:
YEAR TEAM GP G
2004 D.C. United 30-5
2005 D.C. United 25-4
2006 D.C. United 32-2
2007 Real Salt Lake 11-1
2007-08 Benfica 11-2
2008-09 Monaco 9-0
2009-10 Belenenses 3-0
