Espanyol have agreed a release package with Steve Finnan which paves the way for the full-back to return to England.
Finnan joined the Barcelona-based club on September 1, 2008 but failed to make an impact in the Primera Division after being struck down by a series of nagging injuries.
He signed a contract until 2010, but the two parties have agreed to an early termination.
It is expected the 33-year-old will now sign for a Premier League club with Portsmouth appearing to be his the most likely destination.
Pompey are looking for a replacement for Glen Johnson, who joined Liverpool recently, with manager Paul Hart admitting they were interested in the Republic of Ireland international.
Hart said: “We are interested in Finnan and are hoping something can happen on that one soon.
“There are a few things need clearing up. That's all I want to say right now.”
SEEMS FINNAN WONT APPEAR IN THE PRE-SEASON FRIENDLY AFTER ALL

Pompey sign Finnan
Steve Finnan has signed for Pompey on a one-year deal.
The right-back was released by Spanish side Espanyol yesterday and becomes a much-needed addition to the Blues.
Pompey have been searching for a right-back since selling Glen Johnson to Liverpool this summer.
Finnan, who has played for the Merseysiders and Fulham, is set to join Pompey on their pre-season trip to Portugal.

[Sky Sports News]
understands Steve Finnan has agreed to join Portsmouth on a one-year deal and that the defender has passed a medical.
The full-back was released by Espanyol on Monday following an unsuccessful season in Spain and it was reported he was keen on a return to the Premier League.
Former Fulham and Liverpool full-back Finnan only moved to Espanyol last September, but he failed to settle with the Primera Liga club.
Pompey boss Paul Hart, who is also understood to have bid for Cardiff's Ross McCormack, has made no secret of his interest in the 33-year-old and is now on the verge of completing a deal.
The Fratton Park manager will hope to secure Finnan's move before Pompey fly to Portugal on Wednesday as part of their pre-season training.
|FINNAN SEALS POMPEY SWITCH |
Former Liverpool full-back Steve Finnan has completed a move to Portsmouth.
The 33-year-old has signed an initial one-year deal at Fratton Park with the option of a further extension after he was released from his contract with La Liga club Espanyol earlier this week.
Portsmouth boss Paul Hart said: "It whetted my appetite to think that we could get a player of Steve's calibre here.
"He's really looking forward to coming here and we're looking forward to seeing him play."
The Republic of Ireland international made 217 appearances for Liverpool following his transfer from Fulham in the summer of 2003.
He started the 2005 Champions League final in Istanbul, before helping the Reds to an FA Cup triumph a year later.
Finnan brought his five-year Anfield career to a close last August by joining Espanyol, who Liverpool will face in a pre-season friendly in Spain on Sunday evening - a match you can watch live only on Liverpoolfc.tv.
