The tall defender is seen as the player to help Charlton's recent defensive deficiencies.

With Knight standing at 6 foot 5 inches, perhaps Alan Curbishley believes his side need someone with the height to win fierce aerial battles.

Knight has started the last seven games, and his contract still has another two and a half years to run, so is not expected to be allowed to leave on the cheap.
