Former West Brom striker Nicolas Anelka is set to join Brazilian club Atletico Mineiro, according to the club's president.
Alexandre Kailil took to Twitter and seemingly confirmed the deal when he said "Anelka é do Galo," which translates as "Anelka is a rooster," in a reference to Mineiro's club nickname.
The club are yet to officially announce the move but it looks as though Anelka could link up with Ronaldinho after being sacked by West Brom last month for performing the 'quenelle' gesture.
Anelka was subsequently fined and hit with a five-match suspension after his goal-celebration against West Ham last December.
The 35-year old tweeted that he had left the Premier League club and had said he was in no rush to return to the game following the controversy.
If the Frenchman is to join Belo Horizonte it would be the 12th club of a career that has included spells for Arsenal, Chelsea and Real Madrid amongst others.
Anelka's former club West Brom earned a vital win in their pursuit of Premier League survival with a 1-0 win away at fellow strugglers Norwich.
Mineiro meanwhile don't begin their league season until May.
