Former England striker Andy Carroll is set to join West Bromwich Albion for the rest of the season.
Carroll, 33, is a free agent after his deal with Championship rivals Reading expired earlier this month.
West Brom need striking cover after new signing Daryl Dike suffered a hamstring injury in last weekend's 3-0 win over Peterborough that will rule him out for eight weeks.
Carroll is due to have a medical at The Hawthorns on Friday morning.
The ex-Newcastle, Liverpool and West Ham centre-forward scored twice in eight Championship appearances for the Royals, and could be available for Albion's trip to Millwall on Saturday.
