Sebastien Le Toux will not move to Bolton Wanderers, of the English Premier League, signaling that his time in MLS has not yet ended. However, the Philadelphia Union may not be the club with which Le Toux starts the 2012 MLS season.

A source close to the situation tells the Brotherly Game that the Vancouver Whitecaps have inquired about Le Toux and have emerged as a candidate for a trade. The Canadian side was originally one of two clubs from north of the border, the other being the Montreal Impact, that have contacted the Union about Le Toux.

Le Toux is fighting to stay with the Union, despite the interest from Bolton and other teams, the source said.

The move to a Canadian team comes almost out of nowhere after all of the speculation surrounding Le Toux concerned Bolton. The source informed the Brotherly Game that the Wanderers told the Union that there wasn't enough time, choosing to not pursue a transfer.

The 28-year-old is in the last year of a four-year contract with MLS that he signed back in 2008, making this the last season that the Union can profit off of a transfer of their star striker. The Frenchman has scored 25 goals, and assisted on 20 more, during his two seasons with Philadelphia since moving from the Seattle Sounders prior to the 2010 MLS season.
