The Dutch side have agreed a deal of over é¼6 million for the Mali-born player, and personal terms are not believed to present a problem.
As Diarra is currently on holiday, there may be some delay before he undertakes a medical and seals the transfer to Le Championnat.
After leaving Greek outfit OFI Crete three years ago, the 21-year-old has impressed, and caught the eye in the African Cup of Nations in his homeland.
Vitesse are keen to off-load some of their staff in order to ease their financial problems, and Diarra will join a number of Africans plying their trade in France.
