Philadelphia Union open to Le Toux's proposed departure to Bolton

Philadelphia Union head coach Peter Nowak and CEO Nick Sakiewicz have indicated that they are open to the possibility of star forward Sebastien Le Toux heading to Bolton Wanderers.

The 28-year old French attacker has been heavily linked with the Premier League club and although talks are not at an advances stage, the Union hierarchy say that anything is possible.

"I think for every player, regardless of their age, if an opportunity like that presents itself, then you've got to grab it by the horns," Nowak said.

"We'll see what happens next but that's the story right now. We're in the middle of the whole thing."

To add to Nowak's positivity, Sakiewicz was also open to the former Seattle Sounders man heading over to the Reebok Stadium.

"If we can give a player an opportunity like this and capitalize from it and reinvest that money into the team to get better, we'll do that," Sakiewicz said.

"I think it's important for us to understand that we don't build our club around any one player. It's not the Union way. We're a team first and everyone knows 'team' wins championships. Individual players don't."
