Sebastien Le Toux's return to Philadelphia truly does appear to be simply a chance to pack his belongings, as the striker's transfer to Bolton Wanderers is set to be completed in the next few days.

MLSsoccer.com's Joe Prince-Wright told TalkSport UK, in an interview, that the Frenchman was "gonna finalize his contract tomorrow with Bolton."

Le Toux has been rumored as an option for the struggling English side since heading on trial with Bolton last week. Now, according to Prince-Wright, rumors of a "substantial transfer" could be completed with plenty of time before the end of the January international transfer window.

Mirror Football's Alan Nixon had put the odds of Le Toux joining Bolton at 6.5 out of 10, when asked by a Philadelphia Union fan. Nixon has maintained that Bolton's move for Le Toux or any other player would be dependent on the status of Giovanni dos Santos' transfer out of Tottenham.

Earlier today, French site Football.fr stated, on its MLS dedicated site, that "Le Toux should also soon join the Wanderers for a similar amount," to Tim Ream, who was sold to Bolton for a reported 2.5 million pounds.
