South Korea international Park Ji-Sung has been cleared to join Manchester United after he was given a work permit following a hearing on Monday.
United had appealed against the initial decision to refuse Park entry as he had not played in 75% of his country's internationals in the last two years.
The £4m signing from PSV Eindhoven may now be officially unveiled next week.
Park, 24, could make his debut in one of United's early friendlies at Clyde (16 July) or Peterborough (19 July).
However, he will definitely join the Red Devils' Far East tour at the end of the month, which takes in visits to Hong Kong, China and Japan.
He will also be available for the opening game of the Premiership season - at Everton on 13 August - after being allowed to miss South Korea's World Cup qualifier against Saudi Arabia.
