Former Roma and Inter full-back Dodo, currently at Sampdoria, will reportedly move to Santos over the next few days.
He just turned 26 and can play on the left of defence or midfield.
Dodo came to Italy in 2012, Roma getting him as a free agent from Corinthians.
He went on to play for Inter and Sampdoria, but is yet to feature this season.
According to Calcionews24, Dodo is whittling down the final details for a return home to Brazilian outfit Santos.
