Manchester United look set to bolster its ranks with the signing of defender Alexander Buttner from Dutch club Vitesse Arnhem.
According to reports in Holland, the 23-year-old left-back has flown to England on Sunday to undergo a medical with United on Monday ahead of penning a five-year contract.
"This is truly a dream come true. It all went very quickly and I am of course very happy," Buttner told Omroep Gelderland.
Neither United nor Vitesse have made any official announcement regarding Buttner.
The move would come at a perfect time for United as defender Rio Ferdinand has a groin injury and could miss a month of action.
Buttner has been regularly linked with a move to England this summer and had looked poised to join Southampton with Vitesse announcing in July they had agreed to a deal with the Barclays Premier League newcomers, but that switch fell through.
Buttner, who can also operate at right back, came through the youth system at Vitesse.
The Doetinchem-born player made 107 appearances for the Dutch club and had been named in Holland's provisional 36-man squad for Euro 2012 but did not eventually go to the finals.
