If you believe the Peterborough chairman, Charlton nearly signed him before he went on loan to Hull in january.

Think I remember it being a pretty well known thing that fell through last minute over wages IIRC.

I guess you could bring it back to that and say that both statements could be true but I suspect after they went down they were pretty keen. I certainly don't think there's any way Marcus Maddison had absolutely zero interest up until just recently. He probably just wanted more than what he was getting.

Yeah pretty sure it was reported Maddison scuppered the deal himself asking for a ridiculous wage.

Are we anywhere closer to bringing in pace and creativity the crucial component on us being in a relagation fight or challenging for promotion. We still have no wingers

I think we will finish midtable regardless tbh

Yeah think Charlton have wanted him for a while, they've probably approached him since he's a free agent and he's thought of them as a "back-up". He's then seemingly waited for any other clubs higher up the chain to come calling, none have, so he's gone to Charlton.

Do think it's funny that Maddison has been going on like he's the world's least wanted footballer and now Charlton/Bowyer are going on like it's been something they've been trying to do for ages. Sounds to me more like Maddison was hoping for Championship nibbles and got sod all.

Maybe Charlton couldn’t offer him a contract before the club was finally taken over a week or so ago, so he’s not actually had anything he could accept.

But can we get Neco Williams on loan please. Looks like a very good talent at RB for Liverpool but with their players he’s not going to get many minutes.

He's their reserve RB, love to have him but no chance.

Also a fair point, I'd still be really shocked if he's had no interest at all other than Charlton really. It's maybe worth pointing out Charlton had made a signing before that and spent some money, though only on one signing. Since the new owners were confirmed they've signed another 2, both on free transfers, Maddison and Ben Watson, both players who may expect a bit more in wages so you could be right.

I don’t think that’s the case. In fact it’s more likely that we sign him now. 
Going by Boro’s transfer business over the last few seasons we wouldn’t touch him when he’s on a free, but now he’s got a club I would expect a £4 million transfer fee and a 6 year contract offer any day now
