Bayern Munich are reportedly set to sign Netherlands international defender Daley Blind on a free transfer.

According to De Telegraaf and Sky Germany, the 32-year-old newly-released Ajax defender is said to be on his way to Munich to undergo a medical, then is expected to sign a contract until the end of the season with an option to extend by one year.

"Over the course of the last few days, we reached an agreement with Daley to terminate his contract," Van der Sar said.

"I hope he can find another club to end his successful career with.

"Together with Daley, we have decided on a match in the ArenA where he can say a proper goodbye to the supporters," Van der Sar added.
