Official: Sochaux And Hammarby Agree To Terms On Davies Deal

Charlie Davies looks to be all set for a move to the French league as Sochaux’s official website released a statement today saying the player has agreed to the terms of a deal.

American striker Charlie Davies is headed to France by all accounts. A statement from Sochaux’s official website states that the deal to bring Davies to the club from Hammarby should be finished soon.

"A deal in principle has been agreed upon on Friday afternoon between Sochaux and Hammarby concerning the transfer of Charlie Davies. The player's contract and signing should be completed next week,” the statement read.

Davies himself has also issued some clear signs that he is headed to Ligue 1 via his Twitter page with one tweet reading “I'm going to France. I'm real excited,” and another bidding farewell to all of the Hammarby fans.

“I want to thank all my Hammarby Fans for everything!!! You all mean a lot to me and I will keep you in my heart. Forza Bajen.”

Davies’ impressive showing while at Hammarby and in this summer’s Confederations Cup paved the way for a move to the French top division where he will join a club that finished 14th in the Ligue 1 table, three points back of the top ten.
