Peterborough Chairman Darragh MacAnthony has revealed that he has accepted a bid from Charlton Athletic for Marcus Maddison, with the player now ready to discuss personal terms.
The news broke via MacAnthony’s personal Twitter account, with the Peterborough chief confirming that other clubs had also placed bids for the 26-year-old attacking midfielder.
Marcus Maddison Update – As of this morning @theposhofficial has accepted a bid from @CAFCofficial who have permission to talk terms with the player. 2 other championship clubs have bid for the player multiple times & do not currently have permission to speak to the player. –

It was also revealed that MacAnthony had a meeting with Charlton Chairman Matt Southall last week, with both Maddison and his Posh teammate Ivan Toney topics of discussion.
With personal terms now being discussed between the player’s representatives and the club, it looks likely that Charlton will land the attacker, who would be the second signing of the transfer window for the Addicks.
QUIZ: Can you name the last fifteen Charlton top goalscorers?
Maddison has been a standout player in League One so far this season, scoring nine goals and contributing with a further six assists.
Here are what these Charlton fans had to say in response to the news…
