Western Sydney defender Scott Jamieson's mooted move to Swedish giants IFK Gothenburg will reportedly go ahead after all.

SBS claims Jamieson has agreed to a one-year deal with Gothenberg, with an option for a second year, after the club's initial move for the experienced left-back was rejected by the Wanderers last month.

Jamieson, 27, had a year left to run on his contract with the Wanderers but is able to leave because his release clause, reportedly around $200,000, was triggered.

Western Sydney are reluctant to lose him and at first tried to block Gothenburg's approach, but the transfer will go through after Professional Footballers Australia intervened on Jamieson's behalf.

It is his second foray into European football, having spent two years in the Bolton Wanderers academy system before joining Adelaide United in 2008.

It also means the Wanderers need to find a new left-back, which will be difficult given the shortage of free agent Australian players on the market with less than two months before the new A-League season begins.
