Manchester City defender Sun Jihai is set to sign a two-year contract extension on Wednesday.
Sun Jihai has made a total of 145 appearances for the club
The 28-year-old Chinese international was signed by the club in February 2002 on an initial three-and-half-year deal by then boss Kevin Keegan.
Since moving to Maine Road he has made a total of 145 appearances, during which he has scored four goals.
He scored again on the eve of agreeing his new contract in the 2-0 reserves' win over Liverpool on Tuesday.
Sun has been capped 63 times at international level.
Manager Stuart Pearce told the club's official website: "Everything's been agreed with him. He was due to sign on Saturday but we're just in the process of translating the deal into mandarin.
"The fact that he can play in several positions is a bonus. I know he can play anywhere along the back four and anywhere in midfield if I wanted him too.
"He's a good man to have about, a good professional, takes care of himself and that's what you want."
