Brentford are close to signing FC Twente midfielder Kamohelo Mokotjo, according to Sky sources.
The 26-year-old will undergo a medical on Thursday and finalise personal terms after a deal worth £880,000 (€1m) was agreed between the clubs.
The Bees have been keen to sign at least one new defensive-midfield player this summer and Mokotjo fits their profile.
The six-time capped South Africa international has made over 100 appearances for Twente since a move from PEC Zwolle in 2014.
He began his career at SuperSport United in his home country before moving to Feyenoord in 2009.
Mokotjo is set to become the Bees' third senior signing this summer after goalkeeper Luke Daniels and right-back Henrik Dalsgaard.
