Perth Glory are set to re-sign Republic of Ireland Andy Keogh as a guest player.
The Glory are expected to reveal on Friday that prolific striker Keogh will join the club in January as they look to improve on their disappointing start to the A-League season, where they have scored a league worst seven goals in their eight matches.
The club would then look to extend his deal until the end of the 2017/18 season in what would be his second stint at the West Australian club, according to a Fairfax report.
Keogh's first stint brought in 12 goals but he was also a major reason part of the club's fall from grace, featuring heavily in the salary cap scandal that saw them kicked out of the 2014/15 A-League finals.
The 29-year-old striker had his contract terminated with the club in July in the wake of the scandal.
The Glory were found guilty by the FFA of paying Keogh $200,000 through family members which was not reported in the salary cap.
After the club was forced to release him from the final two years of his contract, Keogh signed a lucrative deal with Thai club Ratchaburi, before seeking a return to Perth, where his family is understood to be living.
