The 26-year-old is flying to the UK this weekend to discuss personal terms and is expected to firm up his move to the Amex by the end of January.

Ulloa began his career in his homeland of Argentina - playing for San Lorenzo, Arsenal and Olimpo before making the move to Spain with Castellon.

Almeria swooped for his services in 2010 and he has rewarded the club since with 48 goals in 102 appearances - finishing top scorer in La Liga's second tier last season with 29 goals.
