Sebastien Le Toux Reportedly Won't Be Joining Bolton, After All

Maybe Sebastien Le Toux won't be joining Bolton, after all. Bolton coach Owen Coyle is quoted by Sporting Life as saying that Le Toux did not do enough during a trial to warrant a transfer, seemingly meaning that the forward would return to the Philadelphia Union.

"Sebastien came in for a couple of days, and to be fair to him he hadn't trained for four or five weeks. He did fine and that's where it is. We'd have probably needed a longer look."

As Union blog Brotherly Game notes, the only thing that is odd about this is that Sporting Life is seemingly the only outlet with this quote. It also seems to contradict comments MLSSoccer.com writer Joe Prince-Wright made about the trial going well.

Assuming these quotes aren't fabricated, though, this is clearly good news for the the Union. It's starting to look a little crowded at forward, but that can't possibly be a bad thing. Le Toux has been the Union's best player in each of their first two years and he would have been undeniable missed if he were to leave.
