Sheffield Wednesday are close to completing the signing of Croatian striker Ivan Krstanovic from Dinamo Zagreb.

The 30-year-old forward claims a deal has been agreed and he is waiting for the loose ends of a transfer to be tied up.

Krstanovic has never been prolific throughout his career, but would offer something different to Wednesday's attacking line.

Standing six feet five inches tall, he would pose a considerable aerial threat to Championship defences.

He is confident a deal will be wrapped up in the next few days and is excited by the prospect of testing himself in English football.

Krstanovic told Sportske Novosti: "I'm all agreed with the English club, now I'm just waiting on a work permit.

"Will I get one? I don't really know, but in a few days I will get a final answer.

"Of course I hope that I will move to Sheffield Wednesday, that would be a dream come true for me."

The Portugal international is about to enter the final year of his contract at Old Trafford and no extension has been put in place.

It has been suggested that United would be willing to sanction a sale when the transfer window re-opens, while Nani is said to be open to the idea of taking on a new challenge.

He is, however, keeping his cards close to his chest when it comes to speculation regarding his future.

Nani has been linked with a number of clubs in the Premier League and across Europe, but he has refused to rule out the prospect of remaining at United.

He said: "My future? Nothing is certain.

"I am calm. I have everything in my hands.

"I am not saying that I will not continue at Manchester United. I will think about what is best for me."

While remaining coy on what his decision will be, Nani has ruled out a return to his homeland.

The 26-year-old winger added: "I have respect for the Portuguese clubs, especially Sporting Lisbon but also Benfica and Porto, but I don't think that is viable.

"I think my level at the moment is different."

Nani has also conceded that he would like to play alongside international team-mate Joao Moutinho, who is now at Monaco, but admits that he does not know whether such a switch would be possible.
