Eine kleine Bavarian-musik? (updated)

I am still trying my ass off to get the full details, but Benfica outcast Freddy Adu is auditioning with second Bundesliga survivalists Ingolstadt (who've also been linked with Kenny Cooper this week).

I say 'trying' because no one at the club - and I mean, NO one - is answering a phone. They're not just goal shy! Ze Germans tek ze holeedays kvite seriooos, yaaa?!

I do not know if the Eagles or Aris FC are on board with this, but that's one of the things I will ask if ever presented with an actual Ingolstadt human. Been at it all day, will stay at it until I get the word for a proper MLSS report.

For now, we know Adu is at the club's winter camp and may play in a friendly with Offenbach today. Says the man: "I'm looking forward to my time in Turkey and want to impress Ingolstadt with good performances."

UPDATE: Success!

You are correct about the holidays. AS it says on the website: Die Geschäftsstelle des FC Ingolstadt 04 ist ab einschließlich 24. Dezember 2010 bis 09. Januar 2011 geschlossen.
Good luck getting somebody on the phone.

Well, the football staff is obviously working in Turkey. You'd just think they'd have one person there at the office... NEIN! :D

Wasn't Ian there last winter? Maybe he has somebody's mobile number?

Hmmm... good thinking, Batman.
