The 28-year-old is currently at Bolton Wanderers. The English Championship side have been plunged into financial crisis with players not being paid and their match against Brentford being cancelled due to a first-team strike.

There is a real threat of Bolton going into administration, which could see Magennis released from his contract a year early.

The Northern Irish international left Pittodrie after a four-year spell in 2014. Something of a utility man, he became a respected striker during a two-season stint with Kilmarnock.

He continued that good form south of the border with a two-year move to Charlton Athletic, but has struggled for goals since joining Bolton prior to the beginning of this campaign.
