Star Perth Glory striker Nikita Rukavytsya is on the verge of joining FC Twente after the Dutch first division football side made an offer for the 21-year-old.

Rukavytsya, who is contracted to the Glory for another season, impressed FC Twente during his recent one-week trial there and is keen on a move to Europe to further his career.
