From the Not Surprised News Pile

Davies loan expires:
When D.C. United acquired Charlie Davies on loan from French side FC Sochaux on February 15 earlier this year, the forward’s deal was set to expire on December 1. In light of that deadline, the club announced today that it will not be pursuing a permanent transfer for Davies at this time.

“D.C. United is not exercising its December 1 option to secure the permanent transfer of Charlie Davies,” said General Manager Dave Kasper. “Conversations regarding Charlie’s future are ongoing.”

Reading between the lines of what Kasper said, there are two options. First, another loan period (unlikely but possible) or an outright purchase at a much lower sales price. Much will depend on Sochaux plan's and desires.
