Sky Sports understands Charlton are eyeing a loan move for Southampton defender Dan Seaborne.
Charlton boss Chris Powell is keen to bolster his defensive options, with the Addicks sitting just above the drop zone.
Powell's side shipped four goals at home to Middlesbrough at the weekend and he sees Seaborne as the man who can shore up their rearguard.
Seaborne has found himself down the pecking order this season with the former Exeter man yet to feature in the Premier League.
The 25-year-old has only featured three times in the Capital One Cup this season and now Southampton boss Nigel Adkins is ready to loan him out so that he can get some first-team football under his belt.
A number of Championship clubs are thought to have enquired about Seaborne, but Charlton are hoping to lure him to The Valley.
