Oscar Wendt is set to sign for German side Borussia Monchengladbach.
The Sweden international is out of contract at FC Copenhagen and had been linked with Premier League sides Liverpool, Tottenham and Fulham.
But his agent, Niclas Jensen, has confirmed the 25-year-old left-back has opted insted for a move to Germany's Bundesliga and he is expected to undergo a medical on Friday.
"Its not official yet but it will be sorted today or on Saturday," Jensen told Fotbollskanalen.
"We have agreed on everything apart from a few details that we will set."
The signing would be a coup for Monchengladbach, who only stayed up by winning a relegation play-off, as Wendt had impressed while helping Copenhagen reach the last 16 of the Champions League last season.
Monchengladbach won five league titles and two Uefa Cups during the 70s and Jensen believes more good times are just around the corner for the club and Wendt.
"It's a very big club that's a sleeping giant," said the former left-back, who played for Borussia Dortmund from 2003-05.
"It's a club with great traditions, not least for Swedish players (such as Patrik Andersson, Martin Dahlin and Jorgen Pettersson), and they're going to have some good seasons.
"It is, of course, important for Oscar to play in Germany and in a big league with interesting games every week.
"It was also important that they really wanted him and see him as an important player for the coming season so Oscar is happy."
Wendt is expected to be first-choice left-back with current incumbent Jens Wissing set to be released by Monchengladbach.
"No player will ever get any guarantees but I am sure that Oscar will take the chance and become an important player for them as first-choice at left-back," Jensen added.
