Davies returning to MLS from Danish side Randers.
USA international Charlie Davies is set to return to MLS and join New England Revolution, according to Soccerbyives.
The 27-year-old striker has spent the past season with Danish club Randers, making 23 appearances but scoring no goals.
The former U.S. striker was one of MLS’s top prospects, but his career derailed when he was nearly killed in a deadly car accident in October of 2009. After an long recovery, Davies made his way back onto the playing field with D.C. United in 2011, where he showed some glimpses of his pre-injury form, notching 11 goals. However his relationship with head coach Ben Olsen soured, and he ultimately returned to Europe to play for Souchaux, from whom he went to Randers after being released.
A New England native who played high school and college soccer in Massachusetts, Davies will look to revive his career on a New England side that is on the verge of losing forward Juan Agudelo to English Premier League side Stoke City, and is rumoured to be considering offers for Saer Sene and Jerry Bengtson, with an unidentified Greek club believed to be lining up a bid for Bengtson.
D.C. United had the right of first refusal on adding Davies, but passed on him, clearing the way for him to join a Revolution side still battling for a place in the Eastern Conference playoffs.
