Louis Mendez reveals: 'As of this morning Peterborough has accepted a bid from Charlton who have permission to talk terms with [Marcus Maddison]. Two other Championship clubs have bid for the player multiple times & do not currently have permission to speak to the player.'
In case you think this is fake news, here is the official 'Posh' statement: Bid accepted

He came on a sub in Posh's goalless draw with Gillingham on Saturday. He is clearly not Lionel Messi in disguise, but we shall have to wait and see.
