West Bromwich Albion have had an £800,000 offer accepted by Dutch Eredivisie side NEC Nijmegen for centre-half Jonas Olsson.
The 6ft4in left-sided player has agreed personal terms with the Baggies and - pending a successful medical - he is expected to complete the move over the weekend.
The fee for the former Sweden Under-21 international could rise by a further £360,000 in performance-related add-ons.
Olsson, 25, is renowned for being a tough-tackling defender who is good in the air and comfortable on the ball.
After moving to Holland from hometown club Landskrona in 2005, he has been an Eredivisie regular for Nijmegen for the past three years, helping them finish tenth in his first two seasons and eighth last term.
Albion favourite Robert Koren has become the second Albion player in as many days to be rewarded with a new contract.
The Slovenia international has followed in Paul Robinson’s footsteps by signing a two-year deal, with a further year’s option in the club’s favour.
Koren became manager Tony Mowbray’s first signing when he joined on a Bosman in January 2007 and has since established himself as a key player in the Baggies’ midfield.
The 27-year-old hit double figures in goals last season to help Albion clinch the Coca-Cola Championship title.
“Like I said about Robbo, I want as many good footballers at the club as possible and Robert fits into that category,” he said.
“He has become an important member of the squad over the past 19 months and has a terrific attitude. I’m delighted he’s committed his future to the club.”
