Lee has slipped down the pecking order at Ninian Park and has been made available for transfer by manager Dave Jones.
Jones' Town counterpart Royle is in desperate need of some attacking reinforcements and a deal for Lee could be pushed through next week.
"Alan is not shy of hard work and will give us height up front to complement Nicky Forster and work with Sam Parkin," said Royle.
"We talked about him in the summer, but money was unavailable at that time once we signed Sam. I first spotted Alan playing for Burnley."
It is believed that Lee will command a fee in the region of £150,000.
