The 28-year-old defender is available as a free agent this summer after leaving Coventry City.

He has been offered an opportunity to impress by the Addicks, and has made the most of the stage he has been given.

Wood formed part of Charlton's squad at a pre-season training camp in Spain and did enough to convince Powell that he is deserving of a deal.

There are still plenty of loose ends to be tied up, but Charlton are hoping they will soon be in a position to welcome another full-time addition to their ranks.

Powell said in the South London Press: "We're hoping to discuss with his agent a way forward.

"I've been quietly happy with what he's done over the past 10 days."

S

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
