Charlton manager Lee Bowyer is hoping to make a transfer breakthrough ahead of Saturday’s home game against Fleetwood Town.
The Addicks boss met with a loan target on Wednesday.
Bowyer told the South London Press: “There’s one close, we’re just waiting for the two clubs to agree.
“We’ve told them what we can pay and we are waiting for them to come back with a yay or a nay.
“At one stage I was hoping it would get done this morning so he could come in and train, but that is not looking like happening.
“It all happened yesterday. I met the player yesterday, just trying to persuade him to come. That worked, now it is down to the two clubs.”
Elliott Ward and Simon Dawkins, who had been on trial with the Addicks, have both left.
“Elliott left when we brought in Krystian [Bielik],” said Bowyer. “I think Dawkins is training with Luton.”
