Former France goalkeeper Fabien Barthez is set to sign for Nantes.
Barthez is set to come out of retirement to join Nantes after he hung up his gloves in October.
Nantes were keen to bring in a new goalkeeper with Vladimir Stojkovic failing to impress this season for the struggling Ligue 1 side.
The former Manchester United and Monaco custodian is expected to sign a six-month deal on Thursday.
"He has not signed anything yet but it is being processed," Barthez's lawyer told reporters on Wednesday.
The 35-year-old could make his return to action against Toulouse on December 23.
