Charlie Davies quest for playing time and a full recovery from the accident that nearly ended his life could bring him to the very area where the fateful accident took place.
According to the Washington Post, D.C. United is in serious discussions to bring Charlie Davies on a loan.
Currently with FC Sochaux, Davies has struggled for playing time on the club's reserve side and has yet to play for the first team this year.
A Davies loan to MLS could lead to a permanent move since Major League Soccer only accepts loan deals that have a league option to buy the player.
A move to D.C. is not guaranteed yet, with sources telling SBI that Davies still has other options in Europe. The winter transfer window is still open on some European countries, including Sweden, where Davies began his European career.
Davies was a passenger in a fatal car accident in the Washington D.C. area in October of 2009, an accident that left him with multiple major injuries. He has recovered physically from the injuries, but has yet to regain the form that once made him one of the U.S. national team's brightest young stars.
What do you think of this development? Like the idea of Davies coming to MLS? Hoping he stays in Europe?
