Anderson was released by the Tractor Boys at the end of the season after two years at Portman Road where he scored seven goals in 68 appearances.

Birmingham were understood to be the frontrunners to sign the 26-year-old but now Charlton and Wigan have expressed their interest in the winger.

Addicks boss Guy Luzon is keen on adding some attacking threat to his side while Wigan manager Gary Caldwell is assembling a squad with a large transfer kitty in order to bounce back into the Championship at the first attempt.

Anderson is said to be considering the offers put to him by the trio and is expected to make a decision on his future in the next few days.

The Leicester-born winger, who was on the books at Hull City as a youngster, began his career at Liverpool before going on to have spells at Swansea, Nottingham Forest and Bristol City.
