CHARLTON boss Chris Powell made an approach for Millwall striker Dany N'Guessan just hours before the January transfer window closed on Thursday.
But the Lions did not want to leave themselves short of cover at the eleventh-hour and talks barely got off the ground. A swap deal involving Danny Haynes was briefly discussed but then dismissed.
The Addicks have been keen to sign N'Guessan ever since he impressed while on loan at The Valley last season and the 25-year-old had been expected to make the move permanent last August.
But the Frenchman has featured on a regular basis for Millwall in recent months after starting the campaign on the fringes of the squad and Jackett would be reluctant to lose him at this stage.
