Bursaspor are understood to have beaten off competition from Turkish rivals Besiktas to sign Kerim Frei from Fulham for £2.5m.
The Daily Mail are reporting that the deal has been done and to expect an official announcement before the transfer window in Turkey closes later today.
Besiktas thought they were in the box-seat for the winger's services after first making an approach for him at the end of last season, while Galatasaray were also rumoured to be keen on the 19-year-old.
The Turkish Under-21 international, who was actually born in Austria, has been offered a four-year contract by Bursaspor after being made available for transfer by Cottagers boss Martin Jol.
Frei has found his opportunities limited at Craven Cottage since arriving in 2011, making only two first-team appearances for the club last season as well as a three-game loan spell with Cardiff.
