Garry O'Connor is delighted he is close to completing a move to Birmingham City.
Lokomotiv Moscow have accepted a £2.7 million bid from Brum for the Scot, who will finalise his move to the Premiership after a medical.
He said: "There is only one chance in life to play in the English Premier League - the best league in the world. This is a great opportunity for me."
The Scotland striker is City boss Steve Bruce's third summer capture following Stuart Parnaby and Fabrice Muamba.
