Sky Sports understands that Yeovil look set to win the race to sign Lewin Nyatanga on a free transfer.
The Wales international is a free agent following the expiration of his four-year contract with Bristol City.
Nyatanga suffered the disappointment of relegation from the Championship last season but is being offered another tilt at the second tier with new boys Yeovil.
The Glovers are seeking experience as they prepare for the first Championship campaign in their 118-year history.
That is something that the 24-year-old defender has in abundance, having played his part in Derby County's promotion to the Premier League back in 2007.
