Bedoya, Davies Sign New Deals




Aug. 12, 2013

CHESTNUT HILL, Mass. - Former men's soccer standouts Alejandro Bedoya and Charlie Davies both signed new contracts last week.

Bedoya signed a three-year contract with FC Nantes of France's Ligue 1 on August 8. Bedoya played for Swedish club Helsingborgs IF last season and helped the team reach the UEFA Europa League group stage. He has also played for Rangers (Scotland) and Örebro SK (Sweden).

Nantes was recently promoted to France's top league after finishing third in Ligue 2 last season. Bedoya is the seventh American to play in Ligue 1.

Davies, who hails from Manchester, N.H., returns to New England to play with the Revolution of Major League Soccer. He was acquired on loan from Denmark's Randers FC with a purchase option after the Revolution traded their final pick in the 2014 MLS SuperDraft to D.C. United to obtain him.

Davies has also spent time with Hammarby (Sweden), Sochaux (France), D.C. United (MLS) and Randers FC (Denmark).

Bedoya has appeared in 19 games for the United States Men's National Team, most recently helping the squad to the CONCACAF Gold Cup title. He played in four games and had three assists in the semifinal and final rounds.

Davies has 17 career caps with the national team and has scored four goals.
