As reported in the Sheffield Star, contract talks between Sheffield Wednesday and forward Chris Maguire have reportedly broken down, which opens the door for a move to Bolton Wanderers.

Maguire was thought to be one of five Wednesday players out of contract offered a new deal. The breakdown in talks could be due to the departure of former Owls manager Stuart Gray.

Maguire, 26, scored 18 goals in a three year spell at Hillsborough, including 8 goals last season for Wednesday in 42 league appearances. One of those coming against Bolton, a penalty in a 2-1 victory for the Whites at Hillsborough in January. Maguire also has international experience, with two caps for Scotland.

Neil Lennon is thought to be a big admirer of Maguire, who is comfortable playing up front or on the wing. Attacking options are bare at the moment, so a versatile player like Maguire could well be a welcome addition given the financial restrictions.
