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."

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
