Sources tell TSN Rob Niedermayer is in negotiations with the KHL's (CSKA) Moscow Red Army and failing an NHL team surfacing with a suitable offer within the next few days, the veteran forward will sign a one-year contract to play in Russia.

Sources say Niedermayer has received some interest from NHL teams, but none of the offers have been considered financially worthy.

Niedermayer won a Stanley Cup with the Anaheim Ducks in 2007, but seems to be caught in the salary cap crunch a number of NHL teams are faced with.

Former NHLer Sergei Nemchinov is CSKA's head coach and general manager.
