Charlton target Eoin Doyle is heading out on loan again.

The striker, who has been chased by the Addicks since last summer, enjoyed a prolific first half of the season with League One strugglers Oldham.

But he returned to parent club Preston after suffering a serious blood clot last month that will sideline him until March.

Oldham boss Richie Wellens seemed confident of bringing Doyle, 29, back to Boundary Park. However, he is now attracting interest from MLS side Colorado Rapids.

Speaking last week, Wellens said: “Doyle coming back is a statement. He could have gone to other clubs who are challenging for promotion but we've got him until the end of the season.

"I've been desperate to keep hold of Doyle, not just on loan for this season but going forward it would be brilliant if he stays beyond that.

"Myself and Eoin get on really well and I think it's probably been the best period in his career when he was here. It would cost us a lot of money to sign him permanently because he's a top player, but I'd love it if we could do that.”

Doyle has scored 14 goals in 21 appearances for Oldham this season.
