Norwich City striker Ricky van Wolfswinkel is set to sign for French club Saint-Étienne on a season-long loan deal, according to reports across the channel.
Reputable newspaper L'Équipe says that the 25-year-old will undergo a medical today and that Saint-Étienne will pay his entire salary.
The paper also says that Les Verts will have the option to buy van Wolfswinkel at the end of the loan for a fee of €6million.
Van Wolfswinkel became Norwich's record signing when he joined for £8.5million from Sporting Lisbon last summer, but he struggled for form in his first season in England - only scoring once.
Saint-Étienne, who finished 4th in Ligue 1 last season, see the Dutchman as an ideal replacement for Brazilian forward Brandão who moved to Bastia this week.
