Ronnie Schwartz looks set to finally complete his move to Charlton Athletic when the transfer window opens next month.
The FC Midtjylland striker, pictured left, was in the Valley directors’ box for Saturday’s 5-2 derby win over AFC Wimbledon.
Schwartz, 31, had been a top target for the Addicks in the last transfer window – even heading to the UK before the deadline to complete a medical and agree personal terms.
But the switch did not go through before the cut-off point due to personal reasons.
Schwartz has not featured for Midtjylland this season – they have opted to exclude him after he rejected a contract extension.
The Dane was sat a couple of seats away from his compatriot Thomas Sandgaard last weekend with the Charlton owner determined to add the frontman to Lee Bowyer’s squad.
Schwartz scored 14 goals in 25 Superligaen appearances last season for Midtjylland, who are also owned by Brentford supremo Matthew Benham. He plundered 40 goals in 50 matches for Silkeborg and netted 40 times in 88 outings for Randers.
