Manchester City expect to hold talks with Tal Ben-Haim over the next 48 hours after offering Chelsea a package worth Ã‚Â£4 million for the Israel defender.
Chelsea are likely to accept the offer for the 26-year-old Israeli international, who has been left behind while his teammates are on their tour to Asia.
Ben Haim had been used quite sparingly after a disastrous start to his season and knows his opportunities will be limited this season with the likes of Terry, Alex, Carvalho and Acimovic also vying for playing time.
Mark Hughes, the City manager, believes that Ben-Haim can strengthen his defensive options, although his main priorities are to add a top-class right winger and a centre forward.
