Aston Villa youngster Shane Lowry is set to seal a loan move this month, with a number of clubs chasing his signature, skysports.com understands.
Championship and League One clubs are showing an interest in the highly-rated 21-year-old, who has been called into the full Australia squad.
Lowry has previously spent time with Plymouth and Leeds, and is now set to gain further first-team experience away from Villa Park.
Skysports.com understands that Charlton and Sheffield Wednesday are the two clubs leading the chase to land the young central defender.
Lowry, who is yet to play for Australia, was named in their provisional World Cup squad last summer.
