The transfer saga of Sebastien Le Toux appears to have taken a highly unexpected turn. Citing an anonymous source close to the situation, Brotherly Game is reporting that Le Toux is heading back to MLS, but that the Philadelphia Union may trade him to another team. Right now, the most likely trade partner appears to be the Vancouver Whitecaps, although Le Toux is reportedly trying to remain with the Union.
News first surfaced a little more than a week ago that Le Toux was heading to Bolton on a possible transfer. But after trialling with the team for about week, Bolton has apparently decided to explore other options. That seemed to herald his return to the Union, who are facing a bit of a potential logjam at forward. In addition to Danny Mwanga continuing to press for minutes, they signed Saprissa standout Josue Martinez in the offseason.
Making Le Toux the odd man out in that situation would seem to be an odd choice, being as he's excelled as a forward. During two seasons with the Union, Le Toux has scored 25 goals and registered 20 assists, most of which have come while playing up top.
