Dani Sordo will be confirmed as a Hyundai World Rally Championship driver for the 2014-opening Monte Carlo event next week.
The Spaniard is expected to tackle all asphalt rounds of next year's championship alongside Thierry Neuville in an i20 WRC.
Hyundai Motorsport has recently revealed Thierry Neuville and Juho Hanninen as drivers of the all-new i20 WRC, but declined to make comment on any crew who will join them next season.
Sordo, who was unavailable when AUTOSPORT tried to contact him, will compete on the asphalt rounds of the 2014 calendar following his seventh start in the French Alps next month.
The Spaniard has a strong record on the Monte, finishing on the podium on three of his last four outings.
Hyundai will confirm its driver line-up at a launch in Frankfurt next week, but a tweet - which has been subsequently removed - from Hyundai Spain confirmed the deal.
The tweet said: "Dani Sordo will run with Hyundai on the Monte Carlo Rally and other rounds of the world championship."
Sordo's decision removes him from Citroen's list of possible drivers. Citroen reveals its team on December 16.
