Charlton Athletic are set to make a signing today – with manager Lee Bowyer outlining how many deals he expects to happen in this month’s transfer window.
The Addicks have a huge swathe of their squad missing due to injuries.
And Bowyer is hoping to conclude a loan deal for a Premier League player before midday, so that they can feature at Swansea City tomorrow night.
“We’re looking to bring at least three in – as early as possible,” he said. “Or maybe bring two early and try to get one later on.
“That’s the plan, to get two in, just to help us now a little bit, and then one a bit later on.
“There’s one we’re trying to get done for today, so he can be involved in the team or be on the bench and come on.”
