Michael Brown is on the verge of a summer switch to Leeds United according to skysports.com.
The 34-year-old free agent is currently without a club following the expiry of his Portsmouth contract at the end of last season.
Previous spells at Manchester City, Sheffield United, Tottenham, Fulham and Wigan have culminated in a 16-year stay at the top of the game, with the majority of his career spent playing in the Barclays Premier League.
However Brown is now ready to extend his stay in the second tier of English football at Elland Road, as Leeds move closer to agreeing a deal.
Lilywhites boss Simon Grayson is keen to strengthen his squad this summer, with Paul Rachubka so far the only arrival in Yorkshire.
However, Brown could now be offered the chance to remain in the npower Championship with promotion hopefuls Leeds the most likely destination.
Reports suggest that an agreement could be in place by Monday evening, when the club will then confirm the signing.
