Bolton Wanderers have submitted a contract offer to Joe Dodoo after his Rangers contract was terminated this week, Football Insider understands.
The English League One club signed nine players on deadline day on Monday after being rescued from the financial abyss last weekend.
Ibrox sources have told Football Insider that Dodoo agreed to leave Rangers ahead of his contract expiring next summer as he believes it will be easier to secure a new club as a free agent.
The attacker, 24, will be paid a percentage of the final year of the salary he had been due at Ibrox and is now looking at securing a new team.
Dodoo is confident he can do so as any potential employer will not have to pay a transfer fee for a player who scored six goals and provided four assists in 25 appearances in all competitions for third-tier Blackpool last season.
Bolton are still in the market for new players despite the window shutting at the start of the week and can sign free agents ahead of it re-opening in January.
Dodoo is keen to return south of the border after spending the last two seasons on loan at Blackpool and Charlton Athletic.
A versatile and quick forward who can play out wide or down the middle, he was deemed surplus to requirements by Steven Gerrard at Rangers and did not make a single matchday squad this season.
