Bolton skipper Davies considers Major League Soccer switch

Kevin Davies has held talks with Toronto FC, according to Sky Sports.

The 36-year-old is out of contract at Bolton Wanderers at the end of the season, and has been told he will not be offered a new deal to extend his stay at the Reebok Stadium. This means the forward is able to discuss a free transfer with interested clubs.

And according to Sky Sports, Davies has been in discussions with Toronto in regards to a move to Major League Soccer. This is the second time in a matter of months he has had such an offer, after Houston Dynamo made an approach for his signature in January.

But whereas they failed to convince him to quit Bolton, who he joined in 2003, the fact he will not be offered fresh terms by the Championship club has changed his thinking. Ryan Nelsen, the former Blackburn Rovers and Tottenham Hotspur defender, is in charge of Toronto, and is believed to want to sign the experienced frontman as soon as possible.

Bolton, though, remain in place for a playoff spot in the Championship, which means their campaign could be extended to 27 May if the reach the final. For this reason, manager Dougie Freedman is likely to want to hang onto the player until his contract expires.

Davies has made 38 appearances in all competitions this season, scoring six goals.
