Estoyanoff has been capped 23 times by Uruguay and is the seventh recruit in coach Joaquin Caparros's restructuring of the Deportivo squad.
He has already brought in defender Alberto Lopo, midfielders Pablo Alvarez and Juan Rodriguez and forwards Cristian Hidalgo, Rodolfo Bodipo and Riki.
The Galician club have also said they are hopeful of securing Liverpool defender Antonio Barragan and Racing Santander's Israeli goalkeeper Dudu Aouate.
Their striker Diego Tristan, however, has been told he is surplus to requirements with Celtic, Sporting Lisbon and Benfica reportedly interested in signing the former Spain international.
Depor president Augusto Cesar Lendoiro said: 'I am sure that if we all work together Tristan will have an offer by Saturday that is satisfactory for both him and the club.'
Tristan has said he will give the club a week to settle a deal or he will return to training with the squad whether he is wanted or not.
