Brighton are set to bolster their attacking options after agreeing an undisclosed fee with Oldham for striker Craig Davies.
The 23-year-old Welsh international has agreed personal terms with the Seagulls and will put pen to paper on a two-and-a-half-year contract on Monday.
Davies had a successful loan spell at Stockport earlier this season, but was well down Latics boss John Sheridan's pecking order after returning to Boundary Park.
Albion boss Micky Adams said: "He is a big, strong centre-forward capable of scoring goals at this level. He gives us another different forward option, alongside our existing strikers."
Brighton chairman Dick Knight added: "Craig is an exciting player with loads of potential, he is lightning-quick and his direct approach can be a nightmare for defenders.
"This is a major career move for him and he has every chance to be a crucial part of our future."
Davies scored 13 goals in 47 starts during his time at Oldham, and also netted six goals in 13 appearances while on loan at Stockport earlier in the season.
