Pop star Robbie Williams is on the verge of signing a contract to perform in Israel next May, Yedioth Ahronoth reported on Wednesday.

Williams, one of the world's leading singer-songwriters, has agreed to appear in Israel and is expected to sign with either producer Gad Oron or Guy Besser and Shay Mor Yosef of BlueStone Productions "in the coming days," according to the report.

The concert, Williams' first in Israel, is likely to be held at either Tel Aviv's Yarkon Park or the Ramat Gan Stadium in early May.

Williams, 40, has sold some 20 million solo albums during a career that began with the British boy band Take That when he was 16. His first seven solo albums all reached number one in the United Kingdom, after he left the group in 1995.

He rejoined Take That in 2010 and is currently on a highly successful world tour with the band.
