BUDAPEST, Hungary – Ferencvaros announced on Wednesday that it signed Trinidad & Tobago defender Akeem Adams signed a one-year deal with an option for an extension.

The 22-year-old inked the pact following a one-week trial at one of Hungary’s most successful clubs.  The Budapest team has captured 28 league titles, 20 Hungarian Cups and the Inter-Cities Fairs Cup in 1965.

“It’s a most satisfying feeling to have secured my first overseas professional contract,” Adams told TTFA Media.  “I spent a week here and the coaches were impressed. I worked really hard and now I know the real deal begins.

“Now that I’ve signed with Ferencvaros I know I need to settle in and continue to improve my game. I want to return to the national team at some point in the future.”

Adams played in three games for Trinidad at both the 2007 FIFA U-17 and 2009 FIFA U-20 World Cups. He, who has won nine caps, made his senior international debut at 16-years-old in a 1-0 friendly victory over El Salvador in 2008.
