Swiss club Sion passed on the chance to sign Freddy Adu on Friday after the former United States international spent the week there in training.

Sion said on its website that Adu had undeniable qualities but did not fit in with its plans.

Adu posted on his Twitter account that he hoped to have good news "in the next couple days.''

"I know I'm going to be praying,'' Adu wrote. "Until then I will be incognito.''

Adu was signed to Portuguese champion Benfica but was loaned out last season to Belenenses and Greek club Aris Thessaloniki.

The 21-year-old forward was not selected to play for the U.S. at the World Cup finals in South Africa, and has failed in Europe to fulfill the potential he showed when joining D.C. United at age 14.

Sion had the option to sign Adu because a one-year transfer ban imposed by FIFA and upheld by the Court of Arbitration for Sport last month will not take effect until January.
