Deportivo La Coruna have agreed a deal for Racing Santander keeper Dudu Awat.
Deportivo La Coruna have agreed a deal for Dudu Awat, with Racing Santander receiving three players in part-exchange.
Israeli goalkeeper Awat has been a top summer target for Depor and an agreement appears to have finally been brokered.
Racing will receive é¼1.5 million (£1 million) from Depor, along with Ruben Castro, Pedro Munitis and Momo.
Awat is likely to sign a four-year contract at the Riazor with the shot-stopper's agent Ronen Katsav confirming the deal.
"Everything is waiting for Munitis to agree personal terms with Racing," Katsav told Haaretz.
"The deal is worth é¼5 million (£3.5 million) in cash and players.
"Awat has agreed all his terms with Deportivo and we will wait for the clubs to sign before making an announcement.
"The move is a big step for Awat. Depor is an important club in Spanish soccer."
Depor coach Joaquin Caparros wants Awat as his first-choice keeper next season, although reports claim he is disappointed that Munitis is leaving as part of the exchange.
