Fulham are close to signing Norwegian striker Erik Nevland, having agreed a £1.85m fee with Dutch club FC Groningen.
Fulham initially had two bids turned down for the 30-year-old striker before an agreement was struck on Sunday.
The fee is expected to rise by a further £370,000 should the Fulham retain their Premier League status.
Nevland will be reunited with Fulham boss Roy Hodgson, under whom he played at Norwegian club Viking FK and he will now undergo a medical and discuss personal terms with the club.
Groningen director Hans Nijland told the club’s official website: “Initially the difference between our valuation and theirs was too great and the matter seemed closed. But Fulham got in touch again and that led to an agreement.
“Everyone at the club is happy for Erik to make this step in the autumn of his career.
“He is 31 this year and has received a lucrative offer to play for at least six months in one of the biggest leagues in Europe.”
