Alex Nyarko and Abel Xavier are due to link-up with Southampton in the next 24 hours, skysports.com can confirm.
The duo are both available on free transfers and are now set to take a look at what St Mary's has to offer.
Xavier has been training with Bolton, similarly Nyarko has been put through his paces by Middlesbrough.
Bolton and Boro are known to be keen on keeping them, but Southampton have now made their move and could act quickly to seal deals.
Barry Silkman is representing both players and he confirmed to skysports.com that Xavier and Nyarko were on their way to the South Coast.
