Victor Sanchez's agent claims his client is close to agreeing a loan switch to newly-promoted Xerez.
The Barcelona midfielder is set to sign a season-long deal with the Andalusian outfit.
Personal terms are reported to have already been agreed, with Xerez hoping to finalise the move in the next few days.
"We have reached an economic agreement with Xerez and now we are waiting for bureaucratic issues to be resolved - the paperwork from Barcelona," Sanchez's representative Eladio Pereiro told Marca.
"All Victor has to do is ring me and everything will be resolved.
"He knows this is a newly-promoted team, but he is excited about the project and he is hoping for more opportunities than he got at Barca last year.
He added: "We hope everything will be sorted today (Friday), but if not early next week."
