PSV have revealed on their website that The Addicks have agreed an undisclosed deal for the flying winger, who is currently on international duty at Euro 2004.
Charlton boss Alan Curbishley is actively searching for new players for next season as he looks to build on their success last season when they just missed out on Europe.
PSV are believed to have wanted around é¼3 million for the 25-year-old after turning down a bid from Hamburg in April and it appears that Charlton have met their agreed price.
Rommedahl has been linked with a move to England before with Aston Villa and Tottenham keen on the flying wide man.
The versatile winger will hold talks with Charlton once he is finished international duty with Denmark and if personal terms can be agreed he is set to move to The Valley.
Charlton chief executive Peter Varney has tried to play down talk of a deal being sorted for Rommedahl.
"Whether or not we are interested in players at the championships, it is widely known that the national team managers will not allow any of their players to conduct transfer negotiations while they are still involved," Varney told the club's official website.
"The stories circulating at the moment are typical of the sort of press speculation that always goes on at this stage of the summer.''
Meanwhile, Charlton appear to have lost out in the race for Rommedahl's PSV team-mate Mateja Kezman.
Charlton are the only club to have made an offer for the Serbian striker, but PSV president Harry van Raaij has revealed he is unlikely to join the London outfit.
Van Raaij is resigned to losing their star striker and has told Dutch radio that Kezman could leave as early as next week to a bigger English club than Charlton.
