Soccer By Ives is reporting that the Philadelphia Union are "preparing" to sell Sebastien Le Toux to a European club. The American soccer news site indicated that a full story will be released soon on Fox's soccer site.
Le Toux has been the star of the Union since debuting with the then brand new franchise during the the 2010 MLS season, accumulating 25 goals and 20 assists (70 points) over two seasons with the Union. The 28-year-old forward was much maligned last year until a late goal scoring burst brought him into double digit goals after a nearly scoreless half season. The Frenchman officially became the face of the team and its sponsor, BIMBO, during the past season as well, when he signed promotional deals with sponsors of the Union.
The Frenchman did recently tweet that he was flying to England, perhaps to discuss contract terms on a deal with a team.
More on the story as information becomes available.
