Former England goalkeeper Scott Carson is having a medical at Manchester City ahead of a season-long loan from Derby.
The 33-year-old will act as cover for first choice Ederson and Claudio Bravo with the Premier League champions not expected to pay any loan fee, just take over the player's wages.
Carson has top-flight experience with Liverpool, Charlton and Aston Villa, and has four England caps.
He also spent two years in Turkey with Bursaspor between 2011 and 2013 and it is his varied experience that has attracted City to make a move in this window.
City have already loaned out Aro Muric this season, while Zack Steffen has arrived from Columbus Crew in America but will spend the season in the Bundesliga with Fortuna Dusseldorf.
Meanwhile, City have agreed a Deadline Day deal to sign Pedro Porro from their sister club Girona for a fee of around £5.5m, Sky Sports News understands.
The 19-year-old - who can play right-back or on the wing - is expected to be immediately loaned out to La Liga side Real Valladolid.
