Leicester striker Jermaine Beckford has had a medical at Bolton and is set to complete his move to the Reebok Stadium.
The 29-year-old has agreed personal terms with the Trotters and is expected to sign a two-year deal in the coming days.
The fee is undisclosed but the package is believed to be in the region of £1million.
Wanderers boss Dougie Freedman told the Bolton News: "We are very close with Jermaine. He's someone I have worked with before, played with, and a proven goalscorer who I think will be very good for this football club.
"We are not quite there but I do have a gentleman's handshake on it, which goes a long way for me.
"It's just a couple of small bits and pieces that we need to tidy up."
Beckford scored 15 goals in 49 appearances for Leicester after being brought to the club by former Foxes manager Sven-Goran Eriksson two years ago.
