Charlton are closing in on two transfer targets that could both be signed before the Sunderland clash this weeekend, according to Lee Bowyer.

The Addicks boss said one move is all but confirmed after Karlan Grant and Lyle Taylor fired his side to a 2-1 win over Walsall on New Year’s Day.

It comes as Charlton lost Jason Pearce in the defeat to Barnsley, Jed Steer as he was recalled by parent club Aston Villa, and Ben Reeves who walked off injured in their first game of 2019.

When asked whether the club is closing in on anyone in particular, Bowyer said: “I'm not going to sit here and obviously tell you who but there are a couple of people that we're looking at. One was here today, I believe, and watching the game.

“He would've seen how good we are, especially in the first half, and I'd bet he's excited to be coming to play for a team that moves the ball like we did [in the] first half.

“I went and met the lad last week and everything's agreed, I think we just need the green light and it's all done.”

Asked whether the player is a left back, he added: “He could be another one. There are two we're really close to so, yeah. Hopefully we get them both in before Sunderland.

“That's the plan.”

Despite being in contention for a playoff berth come May, Charlton have been ravaged by injuries in the past couple months.

Joe Aribo, Josh Cullen, Jamie Ward, Lewis Page and Igor Vetokele are some of the players who have been sidelined through injury problems.

Chris Solly’s one-match suspension forced Bowyer into handing Toby Stevenson a start as he has no senior left backs available at his disposal.

Now they must continue their playoff push against Sunderland at the weekend when the Black Cats come to visit.
