Izale McLeod's agent has confirmed that Hearts are interested in signing the Charlton striker on loan.
The Scottish club were keen to bring in McLeod on a permanent basis over the summer but a deal failed to materialise.
Skysports.com revealed earlier this month that Hearts had rekindled their interest and McLeod's representative Tony Finnigan has now declared a move could go ahead.
Finnigan is waiting to hear back from Hearts but does not believe there would be any obstacles standing in the way of a loan move.
He said: "In the last transfer window I spoke to Sergi Fedotovas (Hearts director) but they could not agree a price.
"That was just left but they have chased it up again and they are talking about a loan with a possible review. I am just waiting for him to give me a call to decide.
"I have lived in Edinburgh so I know what it's like. It's a nice city and I know they have the derby there between Hearts and Hibs.
"It's a good club and I told him to go and have a look before you commit yourself as before he would have just gone up there without thinking.
"The talking is pretty much standard because when you are on loan you just take over the contract and he is not on massive wages so that side of it will be okay."
