Borussia Monchengladbach look set to sign Heerenveen striker Rob Friend on a three-year-deal.
The Canadian international will fly out to his new side's training camp in Austria to finalise the deal and commence training.
The move ends Friend's one year stay at Heerenveen, whom who signed for in 2006 from Molde.
Meanwhile, Monchengladbach have also been boosted by the news that Dane Kasper Bogelund has snubbed the advances of FC Copenhagen, in favour of staying at the club, despite their relegation from Bundesliga.
"It is no secret that there has been contacts," said the player's agent, Robert Groener, "but Kasper wants to stay in Germany."
