Southampton had reluctantly accepted a bid from Chelsea's newly stocked coffers after Bridge had handed in an official transfer request.
Bridge has travelled to London and will undergo a medical over the weekend so he can complete his move to Stamford Bridge on Monday.
"I can't see any problems and hopefully everything will be sorted on Monday," said Bridge's representative Jonathan Barnett.
A fee of about £7 million is thought to have been agreed for Bridge, with the services of Greame Le Saux thrown in for good measure.
The 34-year-old will find regular action increasingly hard to come by under Claudio Ranieri, and may head to St Mary's as part of the package for Bridge.
