McDonald Mariga is on the verge of leaving Italian giants Inter for a stint in Spain with Real Sociedad.
The Liga outfit have been looking for a central midfielder all summer, after previously making an inquiry about Momo Sissoko before he left Juve for Paris SG.
According to reports, the Kenyan international will join Real Sociedad on loan for the 2011-12 campaign.
It's understood that terms have been agreed between the two clubs and Mariga should make the switch by the middle of next week.
The 24-year-old joined Inter in January 2010, but he has been limited to just 21 Serie A appearances and 26 in total.
