The 32-year-old scored 46 goals in 131 appearances for Bristol before joining West Ham United for £1.65m in January 2012.
Maynard found the net on four occasions in 17 appearances with the Hammers, before being signed by Cardiff City for £2.5m.
Spells then followed at Wigan Athletic, MK Dons and Aberdeen before joining Bury last summer.
Maynard netted 22 times in 41 appearances for the Shakers last term, finishing the season as their top goalscorer.
