Southend United are signing Charlton Athletic defender Harry Lennon.
The South London Press understands that the deal is at an advanced stage.
The 23-year-old Romford-born stopper has been the subject of transfer interest from other clubs in past windows but the Shrimpers look set to finally end his stay in SE7.
We revealed last week that Charlton owner Roland Duchatelet is determined to drive down costs as takeover talks continue with the consortium fronted by Australian businessman Andrew Muir.
Ezri Konsa was sold to Brentford last week – with the £3million deal loaded heavily on an up front payment.
