In a surprise move, it appears that Charlton are on the brink of loaning Chris Eagles from Bolton Wanderers.
As reported by London-based journalist Richard Cawley, Eagles has been out of favour and out of form for the large part of this season following a successful 2012/13 season at the Reebok where he finished the season as Bolton's top goalscorer with twelve goals, and also created the most number of goals, with twelve assists, though the 28-year-old has not featured for Wanderers since mid-February.
Sounds like Eagles is keen to move back nearer to his family in Hertfordshire. Can play right across the frontline.— Richard Cawley (@RichCawleySLP) March 26, 2014
Eagles joined Bolton in July 2011, along with Burnley team-mate Tyrone Mears, on three-year contract for a joint fee in the region of £3 million, linking up with their ex-manager Owen Coyle for a second time in their careers.
We await developments with interest.
