Skysports.com understands Charlton are set to beat Watford to the signing of Bournemouth defender Rhoys Wiggins.

Wiggins: On the move

The Hornets emerged as strong suitors on Wednesday having twice had bids for his services rejected last season.

It was thought Watford were close to striking a deal for the former Wales Under 21 international but Charlton look to have stolen a march on their capital rivals.

The Addicks have enjoyed a productive summer thus far in the transfer market having this week completed deals for Dale Stephens and Danny Green.

It now looks as though they are to complete a triple swoop as they close on a player who showed last term he is one of League One's best defenders.
