The winger has featured in four of Celtic's seven games so far this season, but could be offered a return to the English Premier League before Wednesday's deadline. Maloney previously spent 18 months at Aston Villa and made 30 appearances in the Premier League before returning to Celtic in 2008. He has previously admitted it was a mistake to join Villa, but may now have to decide whether to have a second stab at the English top flight. Reports claim Celtic want £1million for the 28-year-old and Whelan is waiting for the outcome of talks with the Bhoys before meeting up with Maloney. "Nothing concrete has happened as yet," said Whelan. "We're still talking to the club. If we get things tied up with Celtic then he'll come down for a chat tomorrow."
