Pearce's move to Turkish club falls apart

Heath Pearce's reported move to Bursaspor, a Turkish club, has been voided because the club and player could not come to an agreement before the close of the transfer period.

According to the club's official Web site, Pearce wanted to re-work the contract just before signing it and the club and player did not have enough time to get the deal done before FIFA automatically closed the transfer window.

The move leaves the U.S. left back still out of contract with what would seem to be very few options still open.
