As reported by The Daily Record, Bolton Wanderers target Niall McGinn is in talks with South Korean side Gwangju Fc. The article states:

"Niall McGinn could kill off Aberdeen fans’ hopes of a Pittodrie return by moving to South Korea. The former Dons favourite has been offered a mega-bucks deal by K-League side Gwangju FC.

Club president Ki Young-ok is the father of McGinn’s former Celtic team-mate Ki Sung-yueng. And the Gwangju chief travelled to Belfast to meet the Northern Ireland international in a bid to sell him on a move to the Far East.

McGinn is mulling over his future after deciding to leave Aberdeen at the end of the season and is attracting interest from English Championship clubs."

McGinn is no stranger to English football, having had a loan spell with Brentford FC in the 2011/2012 season, prior to joining Aberdeen.

As well as being a winger, McGinn has previously played as a striker for both club and country, so could very well add some versatility to the Whites' front line.

Bolton are still in the hunt for McGinn, although a big money move to the Far East may prove to be too good to turn down.
