Dutch Eredivisie NAC Breda will announce the signing of Ghanaian youngster Kingsley Boateng this week.
The Rats are expected to sign the 20-year-old on a three-year deal from AC Milan.
Earlier reports said Milan want to maintain their ownership of the player and will allow him to go out on loan.
Boateng spent last season on loan at Catania but made just six substitute appearances for the Serie A side.
The striker has featured for Italy’s U17 and U20 national teams but could change his nationality to play for Ghana.
