"I will be in Paris on Thursday to have medical examinations and then everything will be official," Rozehnal told L'Equipe.
"It is really great to come to Paris. PSG is one of the greatest clubs in France and also a great name in Europe.
"I will discover a new league, a new club, a new stadium and a new lifestyle.
"I talked with Monaco's Jaroslav Plasil in the Czech national team. He talked to me about PSG and the level of Le Championnat and he only said positive things.
"To me, on a technical level it is one of the best European leagues.
"I want to play difficult matches every weekend and I know it will be the case. But I also have to become part of the first-team members. Here, I really felt the officials wanted me."
