Josh Magennis is unsure where his future lies, but insists he will remain committed to Bolton unless told his services are no longer required.

Magennis joined Wanderers in a £200,000 transfer from Charlton Athletic in July 2018 and made 45 appearances during his debut campaign at the University of Bolton Stadium - where a return of seven goals saw him claim the club's Golden Boot award.

With the Trotters recently entering into administration, the 28-year-old admits it is difficult to predict just which players will remain for the start of next season but says he shall return to pre-season training as planned.

"I have one year left on my contract and the club is currently in administration so unless somebody comes in and buys me, or unless the club goes bust and I'm able to walk away from my contract as a free agent, I'm at the club until I'm told otherwise," Magennis told The Irish News.

"With us being in administration, obviously we have the points deduction already for next season but the administrators are there to save money and make the debt as small as possible.

"So with me, there's a number of things that could happen - they could ask to me to take wage cut, they could ask me to walk away on a free (transfer) or wait until a new buyer comes in and see what happens."
