Charlton Athletic have seen talks with Peterborough United attacking midfielder Marcus Maddison break through as the club looks to secure their second signing of the January transfer window.
According to Sky Sports Transfer Centre (24/01/20, 18:19pm), the Addicks have moved further forward with their pursuit of the 26-year-old, after originally seeing a stall in contract negotiations after Maddison rejected the original contract offer.
The attacking midfielder is out of contract with League One side Peterborough United in the summer, and Darren Ferguson’s side are attempting to prevent losing the midfielder on a free transfer in six months’ time.
The former Gateshead star has been informed that he has no future at the club, as Peterborough look to sell the midfielder on for cash in the next week, with Charlton looking the most likely to get the deal over the line.

Maddison signed for Peterborough in 2014 and has made 249 appearances across the past five-and-a-half years, netting 62 goals for the Posh as his consistent performances have seen the talented midfielder continue to attract interest over the years at London Road Stadium.
Charlton will be wanting to get this deal done as quickly as possible, so that they avoid any unnecessary complications during the final week of the January transfer window as they try to secure their main target.
Addicks manager Lee Bowyer has had his sights set on Maddison for the last few weeks, and he is close to getting his man as the Charlton boss looks to strengthen his attacking options for the second half of the season.
