Bradley and Adu about to move

[TRANSFER WATCH] As the January transfer deadline was set to come to a close on Monday in Europe, two prominent Americans were about to move on loan. After weeks of talk of a permanent move from German club Borussia Moenchengladbach, Michael Bradley was about to wrap up a loan move to England's Aston Villa. Freddy Adu's stock has sunk so low that he was reported to be headed on loan to the Turkish second division.

Gladbach had signaled its intention to move Bradley when he was replaced in its starting lineup after the winter break. And he has only one year left on his contract before he becomes a free agent, so the German club must move soon to get something for him.

If Bradley performs well at Villa in the last part of the English Premier League season, Gladbach could earn the $6 million-plus it was hoping to get for him.

Bradley was previously linked with several EPL clubs in 2008 when he left Heerenveen for Gladbach, which is in last place in the Bundesliga.

To make room for Bradley, unsettled Stephen Ireland will be loaned by Villa to Newcastle United.

Unwanted at Benfica, the club that brought him to Europe in 2007 and at Greek Aris, for which he has not played this season, Adu was set to join Caykur Rizespor, which is third in the Turkish second division. It will be Adu's fifth European club.

He has one year left on the five-year contract he signed with Benfica after being transferred by MLS from Real Salt Lake.

    FYI Paul? ADU stopped being a 'prominent' American long ago, and it's people like you keeping his name in the mix. We don't care. The kid is on a downward spiral from incredibly high expectations. Clearly, he is suffering from either 1) delusions of grandeur or 2) incredibly bad advice; maybe both. Freddy, lick your wounds, come back to MLS where you'll be welcomed with open arms, and reset. Really? Turkish second division?
