West Bromwich Albion are poised to seal the signing of Nigeria international striker Peter Odemwingie from Lokomotiv Moscow.
The 29-year-old has been with the Russian club for the past three years, but has opted to take up a fresh challenge in England, having played in both France and Belgium in the past.
Odemwingie told the Birmingham Mail: "Most likely I will join on Tuesday.
"I've already signed a contract. They have been left to negotiate among themselves and then my dream of playing in the English Premier League will come true.
"I opted for West Brom because for a long time I've wanted to play in England, but I thank Panathinaikos for their interest. They are a big club."
Odemwingie has won nearly 50 caps for his country and featured for the Super Eagles at the World Cup finals in South Africa earlier this summer.
