The 33-year-old has a year left on his contract at Bolton but the Trotters boss Dougie Freedman has told the Republic of Ireland international he is free to leave.

Capped 35 times by Ireland, Andrews was shipped out on loan to Brighton & Hove Albion last season where he helped the Seagulls finish in the Championship play-offs.

Brighton are keen to keep the Dublin-born midfielder but the club are without a manager and the player would prefer to close to his Lancashire home.

Andrews started his career at Wolves and made 65 appearances for the Molinuex side in a six-year spell with the club.

He spent time out on loan whilst with Wolves at Oxford United, Stoke City and Walsall.

Andrews left Wolves to sign for Hull City on a free transfer but only stayed for one season at the KC Stadium, making 29 appearances.

He moved to MK Dons in the summer of 2006 and was captain of the side that won promotion from League Two in 2008.

Paul Ince, who had left MK Dons to manage Blackburn Rovers that summer following the Dons promotion, took Andrews with him to Ewood Park in a £1.3m deal.

The midfielder spent three-and-a-half years at Blackburn Rovers scoring five goals in 70 appearances.

After a loan spell at Ipswich Town, Andrews left Rovers to sign for West Bromwich Albion on the last say of the 2012 January transfer window.

Albion released Andrews that summer and was a target for Town under former manager Simon Grayson but instead signed a three-year deal with Bolton Wanderers.
