Hearts have revived their interest in Charlton striker Izale McLeod and could be about to sign him on loan, according to the player's agent.
The 25-year-old was on the Jambos' radar during the summer but representative Tony Finnigan claims the clubs were unable to agree a transfer fee.
Tynecastle boss Csaba Laszlo is desperate to bolster his attacking options and reports claim former England Under-21 international McLeod was due to train with the club on Tuesday morning.
Finnigan said: "In the last transfer window I spoke to Sergi Fedotovas (Hearts director) but they could not agree a price. That was just left but they have chased it up again and they are talking about a loan with a possible review. I am just waiting for him to give me a call to decide."
He added: "I have lived in Edinburgh so I know what it's like. It's a nice city and I know they have the derby there between Hearts and Hibs."
"It's a good club and I told him to go and have a look before you commit yourself as before he would have just gone up there without thinking. The talking is pretty much standard because when you are on loan you just take over the contract and he is not on massive wages so that side of it will be okay."
