Colchester United are set to sign Crystal Palace youngster Lee Hills on a month's loan.
The U's failed in a previous approach to sign the 18-year-old left-back, but Palace boss Neil Warnock is now ready to loan out the youngster.
"He is going to go out on loan for a month to get some games under his belt," Warnock told the Croydon Guardian.
"When Colchester asked about him before we didn't have any cover for Clint Hill at left-back.
"Rhoys Wiggins wasn't doing very well then, but he's doing well now, so we have decided to let Lee go and get some games and he wants to go out on loan."
