Rumor: Bob Bradley agrees terms with Ligue 2's Le Havre

Is Jesse Marsch's mentor moving to France? The Danes seem to think so, and they would know. Wouldn't they?

Danish outlet BT is reporting Bob Bradley - once a Metro -  has agreed terms with French club Le Havre, reportedly signing a contract to coach to the Ligue 2 outfit for one-and-a-half seasons. BT reports this rules Bradley out of the running to replace Denmark national team head coach Morten Olsen, and that the American also turned down Heerenven, 1860 Munich and Molde in favor of a move to France.

Bradley is the hot coaching prospect of the moment, and has been linked to English clubs Sunderland and Aston Villa. Indeed, it was starting to feel as though any club or national team with a vacancy was a candidate for his services.

Le Havre has yet to confirm the report, which broke in Denmark on Saturday but has been slow to gain great traction with other outlets. Bradley has become a darling of the rumor mill since his current contract - with Norwegian club Stabaek - neared its end and it became clear he was not minded to renew. The coach himself has occasionally spoken out to dismiss a rumor or two, though he has also made clear he has options to consider.

Expect to hear this latest story quashed or confirmed shortly.
