Liverpool and Sunderland have agreed a deal thought to be worth about £20m for midfielder Jordan Henderson.
The 20-year-old England international will travel to Liverpool for a medical and to discuss personal terms. Sunderland had rejected Liverpool's previous offer for the player, which was thought to be worth £16m.
"A fee has been agreed with Liverpool for Jordan Henderson and he travels to Anfield with the club's blessing," said a Sunderland statement.
The Anfield club hope a deal can be finalised before Henderson joins England's Under-21 squad on Wednesday for the European Championships.
Henderson was named as one of 13 young players to watch in 2011 by FIFA.
