Skysports.com understands Rochdale have agreed a deal for striker Anthony Elding from Hungarian side Ferencvaros.
The 28-year-old will sign a two-year deal with the League One outfit and is set to move for a nominal fee.
Elding has regained his goalscoring touch in the Hungarian top-flight after going through a barren patch in England before his transfer abroad.
After falling down the pecking order at Crewe he was shipped out to Lincoln City and non-league Kettering Town on loan, but is now set to tackle the third-tier once more.
Elding boasts a wealth of experience to his name having played for Boston United, Stevenage Borough, Stockport County and Leeds United in the past.
The much-travelled forward has caught the eye of Dale boss Keith Hill and has another opportunity to prove his worth in England.
