Graham Stack is poised to complete his move to Hibernian after agreeing terms with the Scottish Premier League side.
Skysports.com revealed earlier this week that the Plymouth goalkeeper was on course to leave Home Park with John Hughes keen to bring him North of the border.
Former Arsenal youngster Stack will put pen to paper on a two-year contract at Easter Road and will battle Yves Ma-Kalambay for the No.1 jersey.
The 27-year-old fell out of favour with Pilgrims boss Paul Sturrock shortly after his arrival on a free transfer from Reading and was told he had no future in the South West.
Stack is now poised to join the Hibs squad in Belfast for their pre-season friendlies against Glentoran and Shamrock Rovers.
He told the Daily Record: "Everything has been agreed with the contract and it's just a case of getting it signed.
"I've reached a settlement with Plymouth to release me from my contract and allow me to walk away from the club.
"I'm delighted Hibs have shown a lot of interest in taking me up to Scotland, especially the gaffer who I had a conversation with last season when he was at Falkirk.
"I had offers from three or four League One clubs and a Championship side but I chose Hibs and I'm looking forward to playing football again because I didn't really settle last season.
"Having started the season with Plymouth I had some differences with the manager and he decided to leave me out.
"He then made it clear I didn't have a future at the club, even though he said he thinks I'm a good keeper."
