Charlie Davies May Be Heading To D.C. United On Load, According To Report

D.C. United has quietly put together a nice offseason, including the selection of Perry Kitchen in the draft and the trade for midfielder Dax McCarty. But they may be closing in on a far bigger splash than both of those players, one that carries a large amount of risk. The team is reportedly working on a loan arrangement that will bring troubled American star Charlie Davies to the team, according to a report by Steven Goff of the Washington Post.

Davies currently plays for Sochanux, a French team, but would come to D.C. United on a season-long loan. A decision will likely be reached in the next 1-2 days, according to Goff.

Davies was becoming an American star, but had his career derailed by a bad car accident back in 2009. While training as a member of the U.S. National Team, Davies was a passenger in a car accident on the George Washington Parkway. One person in the car was killed, and Davies sustained serious injuries. 

Davies would certainly help a D.C. United team that was historically bad at scoring goals last season. While the international transfer window closed on Monday, the MLS transfer window remains open, which would allow Sochanux to loan him to D.C. United.
