Tranmere Rovers teenager Dale Jennings looks set to move to Bayern Munich after the German giants' offer was accepted.
The 18-year-old striker, who only made his debut for Rovers at the start of last season, has been granted permission to discuss personal terms with Bayern.
The Bundesliga club initially made a bid last month and Rovers boss Les Parry admits he could not prevent Jennings from discussing a move to the Allianz Arena.
"Bayern have made us a very good offer for Dale and we don't want to stand in his way of making this incredible move," said Parry.
"When a club with the size and history of Bayern come in for you it's the opportunity of a lifetime and I wish Dale all the best should the transfer happen.
"It also says a lot about the club's youth system that one of the giants of European football is interested in signing one of our players."
Jennings made 32 appearances for Rovers last season, scoring six goals, and is now set to sign for Jupp Heynckes' side.
