Aston Villa are expected to complete the £3million signing of Henri Lansbury by Friday.
Nottingham Forest have finally given the green light for the midfielder to move to their Sky Bet Championship rivals, Press Association Sport understands.
Lansbury is out of contract in the summer but the transfer has dragged on because of the takeover saga which has been ongoing at the City Ground.
The takeover fell through last week and the Reds sacked manager Philippe Montanier at the weekend.
Villa boss Steve Bruce admitted last week he would be prepared to wait for Lansbury if Villa failed to complete the move this month but is set to get his man in the next 24 hours.
Ex-Arsenal trainee Lansbury, who joined Forest from the Gunners in August 2012, has scored six goals in 19 appearances this season.

Aston Villa are still waiting to discover if their bid for Henri Lansbury will be accepted.
A £3million offer for the Nottingham Forest captain remains on the table as Steve Bruce looks to revamp his squad.
Midfielder Lansbury is out of contract in the summer and was not included in Forest's squad to face Wigan in the FA Cup on Saturday because of a hamstring injury.
Derby are also reportedly interested in the former Arsenal youngster, who has 19 appearances for Forest this season and joined from the Gunners in 2012.
Bruce is looking to revive his squad after replacing Roberto Di Matteo in October but will not allow Ross McCormack to go out on loan after Villa paid Fulham £12million for the striker in the summer.

Britt Assombalonga scored twice - included one after just 17 seconds - as Nottingham Forest kept their first clean sheet of the season with a well-deserved 2-0 win at Ipswich.
The striker took advantage of horrendous defending from the out-of-sorts home side to grab a goal at the start and end of the first half.
Ipswich threw bodies forward after the interval but struggled to break down a resolute Forest backline, who had come into the game with the second worst defensive record in the Championship.

Former Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner is set for a return to English football after agreeing to join Nottingham Forest, Press Association Sport understands.
Bendtner held talks at the City Ground on Tuesday and has verbally agreed to sign for the Sky Bet Championship club, with the deal set to be announced as early as Wednesday.

Bendtner will become the 12th new arrival at Forest following the appointment of Philippe Montanier as head coach over the summer.
The Denmark international began his career at Arsenal and had loan spells at Birmingham, Sunderland and Juventus before switching to Wolfsburg in 2014.

Nottingham Forest have appointed Frenchman Philippe Montanier as their new head coach, the Championship have confirmed.
Former goalkeeper Montanier has previously been in charge at Rennes and Real Sociedad but this will be his first job in England.
