Birmingham City have signed Radhi Jaidi from Bolton in a deal worth a possible £2million.
The Tunisia defender, 30, is set to sign a three-year contract with the Coca-Cola Championship side provided the application for a work permit is successful.
If all the relevant paperwork is completed, Jaidi will join former Bolton team-mate Bruno N'Gotty at St Andrews.
Jaidi joined Bolton in July 2004 from Tunisian side Esperance.
He made 51 appearances for Wanderers, scoring eight goals, and represented his country at the 2002 and 2006 World Cup, and won the African Nations Cup with Tunisia on home soil in 2004.
