Charlton Athletic had bid rejected for Bristol Rovers frontman Collins

Charlton Athletic are one of the clubs interested in Bristol Rovers’ striker Aaron Collins – and saw a bid rejected last week.

The Addicks’ offer was in excess of £500,000 but was rejected by their fellow League One club.

Bolton Wanderers are also admirers of Collins with Wrexham – pushing for promotion from League Two and with deep pockets – also believed to be trailing the 26-year-old.

It remains to be seen whether Charlton come back with a fresh attempt for the Newport-born player, who is under contract until the summer of 2025.

Collins has scored 38 goals and collected 24 assists in 139 matches for the Gas.

Prior to that he also had spells at Forest Green Rovers, Newport County, Notts County and Morecambe.

Charlton are also in the process of looking to appoint a new head coach.

Former Luton Town and Southampton boss Nathan Jones is set to hold more talks with the Addicks today.

Former Crystal Palace boss Neil Warnock, ex-Sunderland and Preston chief Alex Neil and former QPR and Brentford manager Mark Warburton are also in the running.

We revealed at the weekend that there had also been contact with ex-Millwall manager Gary Rowett.

The Addicks need to juggle their recruitment alongside sorting out Michael Appleton’s successor – as well as making sure any new additions before Thursday’s transfer deadline are ones they want to work with.
