Notts County have had a £150,000 bid for the Charlton striker Paul Benson accepted, reports BBC Radio Nottingham.

The 31-year-old scored 82 goals in 195 appearances for Dagenham & Redbridge before joining the Addicks last August.

Benson went on to score 10 goals for Charlton last season, attracting interest from elsewhere.

Notts manager Martin Allen now sees the 6ft frontman as the man to answer his striking problems after he missed out on signing Marlon Harewood.
