West Brom will complete the signing of former Wolves and Crystal Palace forward Bakary Sako this week.
The Baggies hope to have Sako registered in time for Saturday's Championship game at Preston.
Sako is a free agent - after turning down the offer of a new contract from Crystal Palace in the summer - and has agreed a deal with West Brom in principle.
The 30-year-old scored six goals in 19 appearances for Palace last season, before a fractured ankle in February ended his season.
West Brom manager Darren Moore has been impressed with Sako's performances while on trial with the club in the last 10 days, but wanted to be sure of his fitness before offering him a short-term deal.
