Sky Bet Championship club Bolton Wanderers are believed to have failed in a last-ditch attempt to sign Charlton Athletic striker Josh Magennis on Transfer Deadline Day according to News Shopper.

The 27-year-old Northern Ireland international hotshot is believed to have been lined up by Wanderers boss Phil Parkinson as a replacement for outgoing striker Gary Madine who joined league rivals Cardiff City in a reported £6 million deal.

Bolton Wanderers are said to have made a £500,000 bid for Magennis although that transfer offer was rejected by Charlton Athletic with the player expected to play a key role for The Addicks between now and the end of the season.

Magennis started his career at Cardiff City however the player failed to impress with The Bluebirds and joined Aberdeen in summer 2010. The forward got his first real taste of regular first team football with The Dons and Magennis spent four years at Pittodrie prior to a spell with Kilmarnock.

In August 2016, the striker joined current club Charlton Athletic and the player has gone on to net 15 goals for the South East Londoners. Magennis is current going through something of a barren spell at The Valley and the Bangor born frontman has not scored for his club since mid-November when he netted in a 2-2 home draw with MK Dons.
