With his contract set to expire at the end of the season, teams have been queuing up to sign him, with Leicester City and even Celtic reportedly monitoring his situation, according to BBC and the Daily Mail respectively.
Now, West London Sport are reporting that Queens Park Rangers have been trying to sign Maloney too, with a swap deal offered up by Harry Redknapp's men.
They suggest that winger Matt Phillips had been offered in exchange for Maloney, only for the former Blackpool winger to reject a move back to the DW Stadium.
Phillips has played just 511 minutes for the R's this season, and it appears that the 23-year-old will be allowed to leave if the right offer comes in.
That won't be a move to Wigan though, and it virtually ends QPR's hopes of landing Maloney, as West London Sport also report that the Scottish international will move to Leicester City instead.
