The 25-year-old has been frustrated by a lack of playing time this term under head coach Philip Cocu and had been linked with a move to Malaga, which never materialised, in January.
Now he is set for a move to Russia, where the transfer window remains open.
PSV technical director Marcel Brands told the club's website: "Although Cocu would rather see the striker leave in summer, he feels confident that PSV have sufficient attackers, including Luciano Narsingh, Bryan Ruiz, Jurgen Locadia, Memphis Depay, Florian Jozefzoon and Zakaria Bakkali, to allow the deal to go through."
Matavz, who joined from Groningen in 2011, will now undergo a medical and discuss personal terms.
