Junior Hoilett is close to agreeing a deal with Borussia Monchengladbach, Sky Sports understands.

Sources in Germany have confirmed to Sky Sports that the former Blackburn winger is expected in the country this weekend to conclude a deal.

Sky Sports revealed earlier this month that Hoilett had held talks with several English clubs about his future.

The 22-year-old has spoken with Tottenham, Liverpool, Everton, Newcastle, QPR and Reading over recent weeks, whilst Blackburn made a big effort to keep him.

But Hoilett has strong connections in Germany having spent two years playing on loan there earlier in his career.

His brother also plays professional football in Germany and the chance for the family to be close is believed to be a big factor in the decision.

As it stands Hoilett is now due to fly to Germany in the next 24 hours to try and wrap up a move to Gladbach, who will play UEFA Champions League football next term.
