Charlton Athletic are paying less than was previously thought for Dunfermline Athletic defender Josh Edwards, according to journalist Darren Witcoop.


Edwards has arrived in London to undergo a medical ahead of completing a permanent transfer from Dunfermline Athletic this summer.


Charlton have an agreement in place with the Scottish Championship side as they close in on the signing of the left-back.



The League One club reportedly agreed to pay a six-figure summer transfer fee to Dunfermline this summer.


However, it has been claimed that Charlton are paying far less than was previously anticipated.



The London club are only paying a fee of £85,000 to the Scottish Championship side for the transfer of Edwards.


The defender has been keen on a move to the south of the border and Dunfermline have also been ready to let him leave.



Once the medical is done, Edwards will be signing a contract with the League One club to complete the transfer in the ongoing window.
