Apparently satisfied that Charlie Davies is fit enough to play in MLS, DC United is expected to finalize a deal with the forward, potentially as soon as the next few days. Steven Goff quotes United coach Ben Olsen as saying, "Everything is playing out right now, so we'll see if it goes down in the next day or two. We're negotiating to see if something can be done."
Goff has been reporting that the deal would be worth about $300,000 a year, a little short of Designated Player money, and that DC United would have the option to buy his contract from Ligue 1 side Sochaux. It's unclear if that financial arrangement is still in place, as recent reports have suggested the deal was not as firm as DC United had initially reported.
Davies played well during his time in Florida with DC United, scoring two goals and adding an assist in one half of play against the Trinidad and Tobago U-20 team. He has accompanied the team back to DC.
