Charlton Athletic have won the race for Everton youngster Conor Grant, HITC Sport understands.

The 21-year-old midfielder is a product of the Premier League club's highly productive academy and although he is yet to make his senior debut, he has been involved on the bench for the first team.

Grant has, though, experienced first-team action during two loan stints away from Goodison Park.

His first stint away from Merseyside was in Scotland with Motherwell where he spent the latter part of the 2015 season,

Last term he spent most of the campaign with Doncaster Rovers in League One, where he impressed hugely - so much so that convinced Everton to hand him a new contract only this week.

Now with a number of Football League clubs making enquiries for him, HITC Sport understands that Charlton are leading the chase for his signature with Russell Slade hoping to seal his signature this week.
