Bolton Wanderers have signed Dutch midfielder Riga Mustapha, subject to international clearance being received.
Mustapha has accepted a three-year contract with Bolton and will arrive at the Reebok Stadium from Levante.
The Ghanaian-born 26-year-old joined Levante three years ago from Sparta Rotterdam, but has not been paid for several months.
Following Levante's relegation from La Liga last season, Mustapha has been looking to leave the club.
He has claimed there was interest from several other teams, but is relishing the chance to play in the Premier League.
Mustapha told Algemeen Dagblad: "Real Mallorca and Racing Santander wanted to sign me, and especially Olympiakos was very concrete, but the Premier League is my dream."
