Sochaux forward Charlie Davies is set to join D.C. United in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida on Wednesday for a week-long evaluation period that could end with him securing a 12-month loan deal to the club.
D.C. United announced Tuesday that Davies will join the club to get training, game time with the first team and a full medical evaluation while the team is in South Florida for part of its pre-season.
Davies has already agreed to a 12-month loan with the club, but nothing will be made official until D.C. United is convinced that Davies is physically capable of contributing at a high level.
D.C. United currently holds the top spot in the league's allocation ranking and as a result has first option to acquire Davies.
Should Davies prove to be physically capable, he'd be on loan with D.C. United for the entire upcoming season. The loan would see Davies return to the area where he suffered multiple injuries after a deadly car accident about 15 months ago.
What do you think of this development? Expecting Davies to impress and land the 12-month loan?
