Japan goalkeeper Eiji Kawashima has agreed to join Dundee United, subject to a work permit being granted.
The 32-year-old stopper has been without a club since being released by Standard Liege in the summer.
United head coach Mixu Paatelainen says Kawashima will bring “much needed experience” but will not automatically become first choice.
“He’s a seasoned professional with plenty caps – over 70 caps for Japan,” Paatelainen told BBC Scotland.
“He’s been to major tournaments. It would be nice if there was a possibility of Eiji joining us because he would help our young goalkeepers with his experience.
“It’s depending on a work permit. Eiji, we’ve agreed everything with him but obviously we can’t sign the contract until the work permit issue has been solved. I don’t know how long it takes.”
United lost last season’s first choice, Radoslaw Ciernziak, to Wisla Krakow in the close season.
