Aston Villa have agreed a fee to sign American goalkeeper Brad Guzan from Chivas USA.
Guzan has been a long-term target for Martin O'Neill and was close to a move to Villa Park in January.
However, the 24-year-old was denied a work permit and the transfer was put on hold until the summer.
O'Neill has now gone back in for the USA international, who was previously a target for the Villa manager's former club Celtic.
The shot-stopper made his final appearance for Chivas against Los Angeles Galaxy earlier in the week and hinted at his impending move to the Premier League.
"It's been absolutely unbelievable," Guzan told ESPN.
"Obviously being able to stay at a club for three-and-a-half years, learning and growing as a player, as a person.
"I've been very thankful for Chivas USA and everything they've done for me. And obviously the league has made tremendous strides, and hopefully it'll keep going in the right direction."
Villa had been in the market for a keeper after Scott Carson returned to Liverpool and Thomas Sorensen was released.
