Ricky van Wolfwinkel's loan exit from Norwich City will be confirmed tomorrow, according to French sports newspaper L'Equipe.
The 25-year-old Dutchman had a medical with Saint Etienne on Friday ahead of prospective season-long loan deal, with a view to a permanent transfer of around £4.75million.
Canaries boss Neil Adams confirmed that van Wolfswinkel was in talks with the Ligue Un side, after a disastrous first season which saw the striker score just one goal following his £8.5m transfer from Sporting Lisbon.
L'Equipe is today reporting that van Wolfswinkel passed his medical on Friday and will return to Saint Etienne to complete the deal on Monday.
Saint Etienne finished fourth in the French top flight last season, qualifying for the Europa League.
