Sky Sports sources understand that Queens Park Rangers have agreed a fee with Manchester City for Nedum Onuoha.
QPR have been chasing the Nigerian-born defender for much of the window and are already believed to have held talks with his representatives.
A host of clubs have expressed an interest with Bolton, Wolves, Everton and West Brom all understood to be keen.
But new QPR boss Mark Hughes is anxious for reinforcements and is now pushing for a deal to be concluded.
QPR will now look to finalise personal terms with the 25-year-old, who had been frozen out of the first-team picture at the Etihad Stadium.
In recent weeks, Onuoha has been involved again with Roberto Mancini's squad and even came on during their Premier League win at Wigan on Monday.
