PSV Eindhoven have confirmed they have agreed a deal with Barcelona for the sale of Ibrahim Afellay.
Afellay announced last month he would not be signing a new contract when his current deal expires at the end of the season with PSV.
A number of clubs, including the likes of Liverpool and Arsenal were linked with the Dutch international, but Barcelona have won the race for the 24-year-old's signature.
Barcelona have agreed an undisclosed fee with PSV for Afellay to arrive at Camp Nou in January with only personal terms to be finalised.
Afellay's agent, Rob Jansen, has confirmed a deal has been agreed in principle to see the classy attacker make the move to Spain in the New Year.
"That [agreeing personal terms] is definitely going to take some time," Jansen told Sports Promotion's official website.
"There is certainly no final agreement. When the time comes we will notify the media and the fans through our website."
