Crystal Palace boss Roy Hodgson has revealed that personal terms have been agreed to bring in free agent goalkeeper Diego Cavalieri.
Hodgson provided a further update at his weekly press conference on Thursday afternoon, confirming that the deal remains on course to go through imminently.
"Everything's been agreed. It's a question of paperwork now," he said. "Will he play? We've only got two senior goalkeepers so his chances are great."
Cavalieri, who failed to make a single Premier League appearance for Liverpool during his two years at Anfield, has been without a club since leaving Brazilian side Fluminense at the end of last year.
