Swindon Town have set up a deal to sign Fulham youngster Neale McDermott on loan.
McDermott is the son of Liverpool legend Terry and is due to join The Robins to build up his experience.
The midfielder has yet to make his senior debut after joining Fulham from Newcastle United and a temporary switch to The County Ground is on the cards.
The former England Under-18 international has agreed to move to the League One club, with Robins boss Andy King hoping to tie up the deal in the coming days.
King is eager to have plenty of options in his squad and is looking forward to the impending arrival of McDermott.
"Fulham want to get him experience and he has agreed to come and spend some time with us," said King.
"He is a young lad and he has said he will come in and work hard to prove to us what he can do.
"It will give us another body and he has been asking when the next reserve game is, which is a good attitude to have.
"The talk he has given is that he wants to come here, play games and show us what he can do."
