(Reuters) - Startup website Foursquare, a location-based services company, is close to getting new funding that would allow it to expand, The Wall Street Journal reported on Sunday.

The terms of the deal were not disclosed. The funding, led by Silicon Valley venture-capital firm Andreessen Horowitz, could be announced as early as this week, the newspaper reported in its online edition.

Foursquare previously held "serious acquisition talks" with Facebook Inc and with Yahoo Inc, the newspaper said. Other media reports previously said Yahoo had been in discussions to acquire Foursquare for about $100 million.
