Australian goalkeeper Brad Jones is set to join Feyenoord with the Eredivisie club confirming they have "reached an agreement in principle".
Jones, who spent the second half of last season in Netherlands with NEC Nijmegen, will have a medical with Feyenoord on Friday before finalising the contract.
Feyenoord have moved quickly to secure Jones' services after number one goalkeeper Kenneth Vermeer ruptured his Achilles tendon.
Vermeer is set to have surgery and will miss the rest of 2016.
"After Kenneth Vermeer's serious injury we had to act fast, also because [back-up goalkeeper] Warner Hahn is out of action for some time too," technical director Martin van Geel told Feyenoord's website.
"We only have two more fit keepers in Par Hansson and Justin Bijlow, not enough in our view to start a season with lots of league, cup and Europa League matches.
"That's why we immediately started looking for an experienced goalie, and we found one in Brad.
"Brad Jones brings a lot of know-how with him.
"Thanks to the half year at NEC he knows the Eredivisie and he also has international experience, due to his Liverpool period among other things.
"Brad really wants to come to Feyenoord and we are delighted he is coming to strengthen us within such a short space of time."
Jones' good friend and former Liverpool team-mate Dirk Kuyt recently signed a new contract with Feyenoord to remain the Rotterdam-based club's captain.
Last season, Jones made 17 appearances for NEC as they finished 10th in their first campaign back in the Dutch top flight.
The 34-year-old has made four appearances for the Socceroos with the last coming in 2014 against Ecuador.
