Norwich City look set to appoint Hamilton boss
Neil, whose team sit third in the Scottish Premiership, will travel south on Friday to discuss personal terms after it was revealed the clubs had agreed compensation between them.
Assuming there are no glitches, he will be transferred as a player, with the midfielder, 33, having been in charge at New Douglas Park since April 2013.
"All that has happened is the clubs have agreed compensation, but there is still work to be done," Neil said.
Speaking at a media conference on Thursday, he added: "As far as everything is concerned with Norwich, nothing has been agreed, signed or finalised on my part."
Earlier in the day Neil spoke to the squad at a meeting at New Douglas Park.
On his way in to that, goalkeeper Michael McGovern told reporters he believed Neil would go "right to the top".
Neil Adams resigned as Norwich boss after his side were dumped out of the FA Cup by Preston last week.
