In a statement on Monday, Zaragoza said they had reached a deal "in principle" with Samaras, subject to the ex-Greece international completing a medical.

A free agent since North American Soccer League side Rayo OKC went bust in January, he is to put pen to paper with Los Maños until the end of the season.

The 31-year-old is scheduled to arrive in Spain on Tuesday afternoon, having opted to sign for Zaragoza despite late interest from NASL outfit New York Cosmos.

Samaras, who has also had spells at Heerenveen, West Bromwich Albion and Al-Hilal, is then expected to be unveiled at La Romareda at 12:00 CET on Wednesday.
