Charlton Athletic attacker Marcus Maddison could be set for a move to Bolton Wanderers.
It is understood the 27-year-old is set to join the League Two club on loan.
Maddison was picked up as a free agent after his contract expired in the summer.
And the former Peterborough United star has missed the last five League One matches – ever since he came off with an ankle injury in the 2-0 defeat to Accrington at The Valley.
Addicks manager Lee Bowyer was critical of the former Peterborough and Hull maverick pulling out of a tackle. He said: “Every player has got their strengths and weaknesses, I understand that. But when players are out there on the pitch I expect them to compete. When I say compete – if there is a tackle then you make a challenge, whether you win it or not is a different thing.
“Some players tackle harder than others. For some people that is their strength, for some people it is not their strength. But you can try. That’s what upset me.
“Everyone knows the person I was as a player. You could probably say it was one of my strengths. That’s why I don’t like to see people jump out of tackles. He actually hurdled the fella.
“Everyone should at least try. You have got all your team-mates around you trying and you do something like that – I don’t think it is good.”
Maddison has made four League One starts for Charlton. He has scored twice for the Addicks – once in the league and also in the EFL Trophy.
