Nigeria forward Peter Odemwingie claims he has signed a contract with West Bromwich Albion and will join the promoted side on Tuesday.
Odemwingie, 29, looks poised to join Roberto Di Matteo's side from Lokomotiv Moscow despite interest from Greek club Panathinaikos.
"Most likely I will join on Tuesday," Odemwingie said. "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 made two appearances at the World Cup finals as Nigeria exited at the group stage. He joined Lokomotiv from Lille in 2007.
