Cameron will be hosted on Friday by the leaders of the EU's executive Commission and the European Parliament, amid signs on both sides that they want a deal.

On Sunday, Cameron will host EU President Donald Tusk for more talks at Downing Street as the Feb. 18-19 EU summit on the issue is drawing near.
