Ben Davies will undergo a medical on Monday with Sheffield United ahead of his loan switch from Liverpool.
Manager Slavisa Jokanovic is hoping the centre-back can be registered in time to be available for Wednesday night's clash with West Brom.
Sky Sports News exclusively revealed on Saturday that a season-long loan had been agreed for Jokanovic's No. 1 defensive target to move to Bramall Lane.
The Blades are also expected to complete the loan signing of ex-Leeds United midfielder Ronaldo Vieira from Sampdoria in the next 24 hours.
Vieira did a medical over the weekend after completing five days of quarantine late last week, having arrived in the UK from Italy.
