Reports claim Aberdeen looking to bring former striker back to club
Journalist Alan Nixon tweeted that Derek McInnes was looking into the possibility of bringing Magennis back to Pittodrie.
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.
