Hearts manager Csaba Laszlo is optimistic about securing the loan signing of Charlton striker Izale McLeod.
Skysports.com revealed earlier this month that the Scottish club had rekindled their interest in McLeod after missing out on a permanent deal over the summer.
McLeod's agent Tony Finnigan later confirmed there had been contact and the player will now fly to Edinburgh on Tuesday to meet Laszlo and train with the squad.
Laszlo has been impressed by what he has seen of McLeod from afar and is excited about the potential deal, which would keep the 25-year-old at Tynecastle until the end of the season.
"At the moment, I think everybody knows that I am very interested in a player who will next week be here and I hope we can have an agreement between the clubs to take on loan," he said.
"Next week, Monday, the guy is here and he has also the interest to come to us; we have also the interest from me to meet the guy.
"I've seen the player a few times and now is the possibility to meet him personally and get him in training and he accepted this.
"Now I would like to test him. For me, it's very important that now a lot of players have an interest in coming to this club and to work with us."
Laszlo believes McLeod has all the attributes to be successful in Scottish football.
He said: "This guy has international experience. He played for England Under-21s. He is a scorer - and he has a Scottish name!"
