The two clubs reached an agreement on a £2.5million fee for the England full-back last Friday, with Boro beating off competition from a number of clubs.
Young has now travelled to the North East to discuss personal terms and undergo a medical before completing the deal.
The 28-year-old is keen to remain in the Premier League following Charlton's relegation last season and will get his wish with Boro.
Gareth Southgate has been desperate to bring in cover at right-back following the departures of Abel Xavier and Stuart Parnaby.
Young should put pen-to-paper on a contract at The Riverside early this week.
