Bristol Rovers boss Paul Trollope is poised to secure the services of an unnamed goalkeeper as he prepares for the new season.
Trollope is also still in the hunt for a central defender and a striker ahead of the start of the forthcoming League One campaign.
He told the club's official website: "We have reached an agreement with a goalkeeper but are not able to give any more details at the moment as we are in the final stages of dealing with all the necessary paperwork.
"It may take a few days, and might not be until next week, before we can make an announcement but we are confident the agreement is in place and a new keeper will be joining us."
On other transfer activity, Trollope added: "It doesn't mean we have stopped looking for other players to add to the squad. We have moved through our list of priorities and it's been well documented as to which positions we need to add to.
"We still need a central defender to add to competition for places and we also need a big striker and now we will be turning our attention to filling those positions."
Meanwhile, Trollope has confirmed the club have yet to receive any offers for Mark Wright.
The midfielder has already been informed he is free to look for another club but, with no bids in for him, the player is continuing to train with the Pirates.
Trollope added: "It's no secret we have told Mark Wright he can move on to pastures new as his time here hasn't quite worked out for one reason or another.
"At the moment, though, there are no offers on the table for him. However, he has shown a good application to training, as we would expect, and for his future and for our season I think it's important when the opportunity comes he's able to take it."
Trollope has also revealed if the right offer came in for Darryl Duffy, who spent time on loan at Carlisle last term, he would be willing to consider it.
He added: "The situation with Darryl is quite delicate as he's part of the group at the moment. However, if an offer comes in that is attractive to the club, and to Darryl, then we will consider it but that's as far as it goes at the moment."
