Charlton Athletic have put their move for Peterborough’s Marcus Maddison on ice after failing to agree personal terms.
The Addicks had an undisclosed bid accepted for the 26-year-old, who has a buyout clause of £2.5million in his contract.
Maddison is out of contract at the end of June.
But negotiations with the Gateshead-born playmaker did not see the two parties come to an agreement.
Charlton are still understood to be keen on signing Maddison. It is likely the deal will be revisited later in the transfer window.
Maddison has scored nine goals and produced six assists this season.
