New West Bromwich Albion boss Roberto Di Matteo says he is happy to press ahead with a deal for Simon Cox.
Swindon Town accepted an offer for Cox earlier this week before Di Matteo succeeded Tony Mowbray in the Hawthorns hot seat.
Di Matteo confirmed a deal has been agreed and he expects the striker to complete his move next week after he has undergone a medical.
"I am aware of the deal and that we have agreed terms," said Di Matteo.
"The player will be coming in next week for a medical.
"He is a very good player, has a very good scoring record and I am happy for the deal to go ahead."
Cox will reportedly cost the Baggies a fee in the region of £2million and he had also been linked with Celtic and Leicester City following an impressive last season at Swindon.
