Hearts have rekindled their interest in Izale McLeod, skysports.com understands.
The Edinburgh outfit first made a bid to land McLeod in the summer, but a deal failed to materialise.
The 25-year-old, who has scored three goals for the Addicks this season, is now being chased again by the SPL side.
It is believed the Scottish club are trying to strike a deal in order to land McLeod in January.
However, there is also interest south of the border in the Championship and League One, and it remains to be seen if Hearts can broker a deal to take him to the Scottish capital.
