Helsingborgs are confident Henrik Larsson will put pen to paper on a new deal by the end of the week.
The striker's future has been the subject of much conjecture for some time, with confusion reigning as to what his next move will be.
He is currently out of contract, despite provisionally agreeing to extend his time at Helsingborgs some weeks ago.
It is believed that a few minor details are delaying the signing of the deal, which will keep Larsson at the club for another year.
However, Helsingborg chairman Sten-Inge Fredin remains confident that a compromise can be reached.
"Henrik Larsson hasn't signed yet but I am hopeful that he will before the team leaves for pre-season training in South Africa on Thursday," Fredin told Aftonbladet.
Larsson is also optimistic that the ongoing saga can be brought to a conclusion in the near future.
"I know there was loads of speculation about what I would be doing next, but I always hoped things would get sorted at Helsingborgs," he told his personal website.
"Coming home to Sweden has been a good thing for me and my family.
"It's always flattering to be linked to great clubs but a lot of the time there is no truth in those rumours."
Larsson had been strongly linked with moves to Bolton, West Ham, Everton and Marseille during the January transfer window.
