Wigan Athletic invested heavily in Andy Delort last summer.
They believed they were getting value for money, with a cheque for just under £3 million happily signed.
Securing the French forward from Tours was considered to be quite a coup, with the likes of Leeds United and Southampton believed to be keen.
Wolverhampton Wanderers were also in the running, and reports suggest that they are ready to rekindle their interest.
Delort has flopped badly at the DW Stadium and is yet to open his Championship goal account.
He has found game time limited under new Latics boss Malky Mackay and may have to move on if he is rediscover his spark.

His lack of success in the final third appears to have done little harm to his reputation, with several of Wigan’s second-tier rivals reportedly keen on taking the 23-year-old on loan.
Wolves are back in the hunt, with Kenny Jackett known to be in the market for attacking reinforcements, while Sheffield Wednesday are the lowest scorers in the division and badly in need of a striking spark.
Charlton Athletic have also been credited with holding an interest in Delort – a man who topped Diafra Sakho in the Ligue 2 scoring charts last season before the pair headed for England at Wigan and West Ham United respectively.
He clearly knows his way to the back of the net, having netted 24 times last term, but a change of scenery may be required if he is to snap out of a slump and avoid getting stuck in a career rut.
