The future of Scotland international Shaun Maloney is no clearer today as he looks certain to leave Wigan Athletic in the January transfer window.

It looked as if Maloney would make a return to the Premier League with bottom of the league Leicester City after a £1 million fee was agreed.

Unfortunately for Nigel Pearson Maloney won’t be unveiled as his third season of the window as the Foxes couldn’t agree personal terms with the winger.

The 32 year old has drawn interest from many clubs in the UK and even in the MLS. QPR, Everton, Celtic and Chicago Fire are all after his signature.

With the imminent departure of Samuel Eto’o at Everton there could be a reunion on the cards with former boss Roberto Martinez.

The Scot is also weighing up his options with the possibility of a return to Celtic where he has spent 10 years of his career over two spells.

With Wigan looking for around £1 million the Scottish champions may be priced out a move for the winger.

The F.A cup winner is thought o have been tempted with a move to the USA with Chicago Fire, who get their campaign under way in March.

While he picks his new destination his current manager Malky Mackay is delighted to still have him available for selection.

"Shaun is back as my player again," he is quoted saying by The Independent. "I have spoken to him this morning personally I'm delighted I've still got him. He is here until the last day of his contract unless something else happens that changes that.’
