Southampton Football Club hope to conclude a deal for Scott Dann this week.
The defender left Birmingham City last summer following their relegation from the Premier League, and linked up with Blackburn Rovers in a £6million transfer.
However, Dann suffered the same fate with the Lancashire club last term, and he is now expected to once more change employers so he can remain in the top-flight.
The 25-year-old has been heavily linked with a move to Southampton, and Nigel Adkins hopes to lure him to St Mary’s in a £5million deal within the next few days.
