Atletico Madrid forward Jose Antonio Reyes is on the brink of joining Benfica on loan.
According to reports in Spain, Reyes will tie up a temporary move to the Portuguese club in the next 24 hours after two weeks of negotiations.
There is also expected to be an option for a permanent sale at the end of the season for a fee in the region of 15million euros (£11.9million).
Reyes had a miserable first season at Atletico following his switch from Arsenal last summer.
He made 26 appearances but failed to score a single goal, and no longer appears to figure in the plans of Javier Aguirre.
The 24-year-old, who has also spent time at Sevilla and Real Madrid, was linked with a move to Newcastle last month.
