Charlie Kirk is set to make a loan exit from Charlton Athletic before tomorrow night’s transfer deadline.
Burton Albion are one of the clubs interested in taking the winger for the second half of the campaign.
But the South London Press has been told that there is also interest from other clubs in Kirk, who has not made the bench for four of Charlton’s last five League One matches.
Jesurun Rak-Sakyi and Corey Blackett-Taylor look the first choice picks in the wide areas with manager Dean Holden preferring youngster Tyreece Campbell as his back-up option in Saturday’s 2-1 defeat to Bolton Wanderers.
Charlton paid £500,000 for Kirk in August 2021 to sign him from Crewe.
He has scored three goals in 40 appearances for the Addicks but also had a spell on loan with Blackpool in January 2022.
Holden confirmed on Saturday that he was looking to trim the size of his squad before the cut-off for player movement at 11pm on Tuesday.
Burton have already signed one player from Charlton in this transfer window, snapping up goalkeeper Craig MacGillivray.
