Toronto FC came very close to adding a quality striker to partner with Robert Earnshaw, but their quest to build a potent strike tandem has fallen short after word that Kevin Davies move from Bolton to TFC has fallen apart.

Bolton announced on Wednesday that Davies will be staying with the Trotters, with the Bolton News reporting that a “contractual glitch” prevented Davies from completing the transfer.

While losing out on the 36-year-old striker appears to be a setback, what is clear is that Toronto FC is being aggressive about improving a roster that has already shown considerable improvement from 2012 to now. It is clear the team is still looking to bolster the attack, with Earnshaw being the clear leading threat, but one who could use some support up top.

What do you think of this development? Think TFC might be better off not adding Davies, or do you think he would have been a good fit? See Toronto threatening for a playoff spot this year?
