The forward, who hasn't featured for the U.S. since 2009, returns to Scandinavia hoping to reignite his career.Charlie Davies is returning to Scandavia after agreeing to a two-year contract with Danish Superliga side Randers, according to MLSsoccer.com.
The move comes shortly after the United States striker received a mutual consent release from Ligue 1 Sochaux. Heading to Denmark sees Davies return to the region where he had his biggest success as a club player. While playing for Swedish side Hammarby IF, Davies scored 21 goals in 56 appearances.
Since being involved with a horrible car accident in 2009 that left him with severe injuries, Davies has fought to get back into the U.S. national team with little success. He has never been able to reclaim the pace that made him a deadly complement to the physical Jozy Altidore up top. Davies even had a spell with Major League Soccer side D.C. United where he scored 11 goals in 26 appearances.
Davies is expected to start training with the club on Saturday. He will become the third former MLS player to player for Randers, following Will John and Yura Movsisyan. The club also formerly employed New England Revolution attacker Lee Nguyen.
Strong form in the Superliga could see Davies return to national team consideration.
