Charlton have emerged as favourites to sign Crystal Palace defender Emmerson Boyce.
The 26-year-old only has 12 months remaining on his Palace contract and has made no secret of his desire to play in The Premiership.
He has been linked with moves to Wigan, Fulham and Charlton this summer, but the presence of former Eagles boss Iain Dowie at The Valley looks likely to tip the scales in The Addicks' favour.
Reports suggest that Boyce will sign for around £1.75 million and secure a reunion with Dowie, who joined Charlton at the end of May.
"Palace have offered me a new contract, but it wasn't really what I was looking for," said Boyce.
"I want to play in The Premiership and I just hope people can understand that."
Palace are resigned to his departure and are looking to cash in while he is still under contract.
"Emmerson has made it clear he doesn't want to be at the club so we have to listen to offers for him," said director of football Bob Dowie.
"He's only got one year left on his contract and there's no way we can afford to lose him for nothing next summer."
