CHANTILLY, Va. (AP) _ Former English soccer star Paul Gascoigne won’t be signing with Major League Soccer and DC United this season.

The team said Thursday that it had decided with Gascoigne and agent Ian Elliott not to pursue a contract. Gascoigne trained with DC United twice in the last week.

Gascoigne, a 35-year-old midfielder, led England to the 1990 World Cup semifinals and had 10 goals in 57 international appearances. He scored 106 goals in 442 first-division games for teams in England, Scotland and Italy.
