Charlton boss Karl Robinson says there is no timescale for offering Leon Best a deal.

The free agent has been training with the Addicks for the past two weeks. The former Newcastle striker is hoping to earn a short-term contract at the Valley.

Best, 31, has Premier League and Championship experience after spells with Newcastle, Blackburn and Ipswich.

Robinson told News Shopper: “He’s still training with us. He’ll have another big week next week.

“We've had Saturday-Tuesday-Saturday games so it’s not like the schedule has been too intense for him.

“He’ll train today and tomorrow and next week it’ll be a testing week to go through one or two facets of his fitness. And then we’ll be more calculated rather than opinionated.

“It’s not a case of impressing - we all know what Leon Best can do. It’s just about getting things right.”

Charlton are light in the striker department, which has resulted in Josh Magennis playing every minute of every game that he’s been available for this season.

Joe Dodoo was signed on loan from Rangers, but has failed to make an impact in SE7.

And Best would be a solid back-up option to Magennis, who is scheduled to have a much-needed rest in the coming weeks.

When asked if there is a timescale on offering Best a deal, Robinson said: “No, no, he’s in the process of moving house this week.

“He didn't expect this [training with Charlton] to come so quickly. He’s calm about it. He’s a really good lad. It’s really surprised me, which is nice.

“He’s moving further south. He’s in a good place so that’s important to me.”
